§ Mr. Sanders
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what financial provision has been made for the Kingskerswell bypass (Torbay Expressway); and if he will make a statement. 
§ Ms Glenda Jackson
The Kingskerswell Bypass scheme was removed from the Highways Agency long-term programme in December 1996. I understand 5W that Devon County Council are investigating the scope to progress this scheme as a Public Private Partnership. No financial provision has been made for the scheme at this time.
