§ Mr. Alison
asked the Minister of Transport (1) what is the estimated cost of the road works now being undertaken to improve the A64 trunk road between Tadcaster and York;
(2) whit recent estimate he has made of the cost of building a by-pass round the town of Tadcaster, Yorkshire.
§ Mr. Swingler
The estimated cost of the roadworks now being undertaken is about £150,000. The cost of a Tadcaster By-pass depends on its alignment, which is now being investigated; it is expected to be at least £15 million, and could be substantially higher.
