§ Mr. Golding
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many miles of motorway it is intended to build in each of the next five years.
§ Mr. Graham Page
Over 750 miles of motorway are being built or in preparation, and I expect this will be largely completed during the next five years. The mileage completed in any one year will depend on a number of factors including satisfactory progress during the statutory procedures and the construction.
