§ Mr. Body
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will defer a final decision on the nature of the improvements to the A17 road between Fleet and Saracens Head, the Holbeach bypass, until consultations have taken place with the East Elloe Rural District Council, the Holbeach Parish Council and the Holbeach Chamber of Trade.
§ Mr. Michael Heseltine
Proposals for the improvement of this length of A17 will be published shortly. It is open to local councils and other interests to comment both before and after publication and any views they might express will be taken into account before any decision is taken.
East Elloe R.D.C. and Holbeach Parish Council have already submitted comments on this scheme, following preliminary consultations.
