§ Mr. Wiggin
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish in the Official Report a table showing the current motorway contracts under construction with the latest estimated dates of completion.
§ Mr. Michael Heseltine
Following is the information:
he commenced his examination of the proposals for the Fleet Line; how this examination differs from that already made by the Greater London Council; 93W and what criteria he is using to judge the merits of this project.
§ Mr. Graham Page
A formal request for infrastructure grant was made on 18th July, 1970. Both the Government and the G.L.C. are concerned with the line's value for money, in terms of its costs and benefits, including its effect on the environment and on the development of London.
The Government are also concerned with the implications for the South East generally and the allocation of resources between competing claimants, both in the transport sector and beyond.
My right hon. Friend's decision will take into account all these factors.
