§ Mrs. Dunwoody
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list for each road scheme which has been withdrawn from the road programme(a) the sums expended by interested parties in developing the proposals, (b) the stage which the scheme had reached, (c) the reasons for the withdrawal, (d) the latest annual accident figures for the roads affected by the scheme and (e) the current volumes of traffic recorded on roads affected by the scheme. 
§ Mr. Watts
I have set out the schemes which are shown in the November 1995 review as being withdrawn together with the stage that each scheme had reached.
During the review, careful consideration was given to allocating the limited road construction resources to where the need is greatest. Clearly, some schemes have a greater call on the available resources than others and it is now clear that resources were no longer available to allow all the 1994 roads review schemes to proceed in the foreseeable future.
Information relating to sums expended and to the accident and traffic figures above is currently being collated and I will write to the hon. Member separately as soon as it is available.

§ Mrs. Dunwoody
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list for each road scheme which has been deferred to the long-term list(a) the reason for that deferral, (b) the latest annual accident figures for the roads affected by the scheme and (c) the current volumes of traffic affected by the scheme. 
§ Mr. Watts
I have set out the schemes in preparation which are now included in the longer-term category of "Managing the trunk road programme November 1995". During the review, careful consideration was given to allocating the limited road construction resources where the need is greatest. While these longer-term schemes have been retained in the road programme, they are not as pressing as certain others. Consequently, funds cannot be allocated to take them forward in the immediate future. All preparation work on these schemes will be stopped by the end of this financial year 1995–96.
Information relating to the accident and traffic figures is currently being collated and I will write to the hon. Member separately as soon as it is available
