§ Mr. Watts
[holding answer 16 January 1996]: I have asked the chief executive of the Highways Agency to write to the hon. Member.
Letter from Lawrie Haynes to Mr. Paul Tyler, dated 17 January 1996:The Minister for Railways and Roads, Mr John Watts, has asked me to write to you in reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking when the Secretary of State for Transport expects the contract for the improvement of the A30 trunk road junction at Kennards House, North Cornwall, to be let.It had been planned to let a contract for this scheme during the current financial year. However, in light of the reduced level of funding for National Roads announced in November's Budget Statement, the Secretary of State announced changes to the Highways Agency's Business Plan for 1995/96 on 10 January. The scheme has been deferred but will be taken forward when funds become available.I am sorry I cannot be more forthcoming at the moment.
