§ 26. Mr. William Powell
asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects construction work to begin on the A1/M1 link between Kettering and Brampton.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
The start of construction depends on the outcome of the public inquiries which ended last June after nine months. The Secretaries of State for the Environment and for Transport will announce their joint decision when they have been able to consider the inspector's report. This is not expected before June or July. On present expectations, work could start during 1987.
