§ Mr. David Marshall
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will review the proposal to change the name of the M74 motorway to the M6; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Macdonald
The previous Government had proposed that once the Glasgow to Carlisle road was upgraded to motorway throughout, its name should change to the M6. I confirm that there is no intention to renumber the route before all the remaining sections of the all-purpose route have been upgraded. From 1 July 1999, this will be a matter for the Scottish Parliament.
