asked the Minister of Transport when he expects to authorise the construction of a motorway or road of motorway standard between the M.6 motorway and Runcorn, Chester and Birkenhead.

These towns will be linked to M.6 by the Mid-Wirral road and the North Cheshire motorway. The former, and important sections of the latter, are in my current road programme. I expect to publish on 24th December the draft line of the Helsby-Frodsham By-Pass section of the motorway, and I hope that constructional work on it will start in 1968.
