§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what approaches have been made by the Welsh Office to the European Investment Bank for loans to speed up construction of the A55 Euroroute in the counties of Gwynedd and Clwyd; and what has been the response of the EIB.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
None. The availability of such loans would not in fact speed up the construction of the A55 project.
