§ 59. Mr. John Hall
asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the conflict of expert opinion between individual members of the Landscape Advisory Committee about the proposed route of the M40 extension, he will publish details of the woodland route which differs only in minor detail from the Arup-Jellicoe line and which was considered and rejected by the committee.
§ Mr. Mulley
No. There was a public inquiry into my proposal and the alternative line which was put forward by objectors, and following this I reached my decision on a very careful assessment of all the factors involved.
