§ Mr. Rooker
asked the Secetary of State for Transport if any alteration was made to the original tender specification for the bearing plinth replacements recently completed at Gravelly Hill on the Midland link motorways; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Chalker
[pursuant to her reply, 27 May]: Apart from routine changes to meet local conditions the only alteration has been in respect of the period between the application of the second and third coats of sealing compound.451W
This was reduced from seven to two days but the alteration was discontinued after discussions between my Department and the agent authority.
