asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he will give an up to date list of the major uncompleted road schemes on which substantial sums have already been spent and for which the necessary land has been purchased and plans made; and in respect of which schemes steps are to be taken for their completion in the road programmes for the next three years.

I am arranging for a list to be prepared giving the information so far as this is practicable and will let the hon. Member have it as soon as it is ready.I regret that I cannot give a comprehensive list of the schemes in this category which will be approved for completion in the first three years of the road programme since they are still in course of selection. My statement to the House on 8th December included the following uncompleted schemes on which substantial sums have already been spent and on which it is hoped to resume work in the next three years: Cromwell Road Extension; Dartford—Purfleet Tunnel; Ashford Bypass; Sinderby Bridge; Borrowash Bypass.
