§ Mr. Norman Hogg
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he anticipates being able to announce his decision on the line of the proposed M80 motorway between Stepps and Haggs.
§ Mr. Ancram
As I told the hon. Member in my letter of 21 March 1986, there is a good prospect of a preferred line being selected during the latter half of this year, followed by the publication of draft orders during the first half of 1987. The assessment of possible lines for the motorway is going ahead with all speed.
