§ Sir Mark Lennox-Boyd
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on progress with the trunk road aspects of the Sefton Eurogateway regional challenge. 
§ Sir George Young
I am pleased to say that the Highways Agency will make its contribution of £770,000 to the Eurogateway project by funding the environmental improvements to the A5036 in 1998–99. This should now enable the project to go forward.
