§ Mr. Michael Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he has given the go-ahead to Humberside county council for the construction of the A15, Barnetby top/Redbourne link; if funding for this project is now available; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
I have already given approval in principle to this scheme for grant purposes. Progress depends on the council obtaining confirmation of the necessary orders. I understand that these are to be published soon. A public inquiry may be necessary before any decision can be taken.
