asked the Minister of Transport why he has not included in the County of Dorset any authorisation of classified road schemes of over £100,000 grant value for the periods 1961–62, 1962–63 and 1963–64; and whether he will reconsider this decision.

I have been able to include in the first three year programme only those schemes which command the highest priority throughout the country having regard to the urgent need to alleviate congestion in our cities. I regret that it was not possible to include all the schemes submitted. I hope to announce the programme for 1964–65 later this year.
