§ Mr. Denham
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will ensure that any proposals to widen the M27 motorway are subject to a full public inquiry.245W
§ Mr. Key
As indicated in an earlier answer to the hon. Member,Official Report, column 345, consultants have yet to be appointed for the widening, and future progress on the scheme depends on the outcome of the review of scheme priorities announced by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport last August. It is too early to say whether a public inquiry will be held.
