HC Deb 05 August 1976 vol 916 c972W
Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is now able to announce his decision as to whether the M67 (Denton bypass) will be built.

Mr. Marks

No, but my hon. Friend expects to announce his decision on the outstanding statutory orders during the next six weeks. As indicated in the reply of my hon. Friend the Minister for Transport to my hon. Friend the Member for Consett (Mr. Watkins) yesterday, the starting date for this scheme has been put back to 1978 because of expenditure constraints.
