§ 38. Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will make a statement about the most recent cuts in the roads programme.
§ Mr. Marks
Following the Budget Statement last year by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the road construction programme for 1976–77 was cut by about 8 per cent. Any changes in the programme for subsequent years will be announced in the forthcoming White Paper on Public Expenditure.
