§ Mr. Michael Brown
asked the Minister of Transport (1) if his Department will be announcing any cutbacks in future trunk road improvement programmes;
(2) when he expects to make an announcement about the future of trunk road improvement schemes.
§ Mr. Fowler
Part of the £10 million savings on roads in 1979–80 that I announced after the Budget Statement on 12 June will be found from new construction and improvement of motorways and trunk roads. For future years my intentions on this and other transport expenditure matters will be announced in due course.
