The council asked last month to be allowed to start work, at a cost of about £20,000, on the first phase of the proposed inner relief road. My right hon. Friend has told the council to go ahead if it is fully satisfied that the road must proceed now.

I thank the hon. Gentleman for that reply, but is he aware that the delays imposed by the Departments have already involved the local authority in considerably increased costs, because of the purchase of property for the building of this road, and will he see that there are no further delays?

As the hon. Gentleman knows, I have met the town council on this matter and we have given it the go-ahead on the first phase as early as possible. For the remaining phases, we will have to see how the provisional programme for 1967–69 goes.
