§ Mr. Hooson
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what consideration he has given to the suggestions of the Welshpool Civic Society made to him for the sign-posting of alternative routes to bypass Welshpool; or if he will take alternative steps as an interim measure to relieve the problem of traffic congestion through Welshpool in the summer months.94W
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
The suggested alternative routes are being examined. But traffic congestion in Welshpool cannot be overcome without the construction of a trunk road bypass. The investigation of possible routes for it is proceeding.
