§ 7. Mr. Michael Barnes
asked the Minister of Transport what is the latest estimate he has made of the financial contribution which his Department will be called upon to make towards the building of the primary road network proposed for London by the Greater London Council.
§ Mr. Mulley
Planning is proceeding, subject to the appropriate statutory procedures, on the basis that my Department will commit about £200 million on48W principal and trunk road schemes for the primary network in London during the 5 to 8 year period beginning in 1971–72. I cannot say what funds are likely to be available beyond this period.
