asked the Minister of Transport if he will now publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT a list of his proposals for expenditure on classified roads by counties in respect of schemes costing less than £100,000 during each of the next three years.

Members may have realised from the notes to the table, they did in fact include some schemes in these areas.
