asked the Minister of Transport what is the cost of the present improvement works which are proceeding on the A.27 trunk road at Shoreham-by-Sea, and which are shown on the relevant plans as the first stage of these improvements; and what second and subsequent stages of these improvements he envisages.

Approximately£37,000. I hope later on to extend this improvement westwards for a distance of some 400 yards, at an estimated cost of£20,000.

asked the Minister of Transport what is the estimated cost of the compulsory acquisition of land necessary to complete the improvements along the A.27 trunk road between Brighton and Lancing.

The only additional improvements now planned are the westward extension of the present improvement of Upper Shoreham Road and a small scheme at Portslade. The land required is already in my possession.
