asked the Minister of Transport why he did not publish the inspector's report into the Allestree link road during 1979; when he will publish it; and if he will make a statement.
The decision on the orders concerned will be announced within a few days and I will, of course, write to the hon. Member. The inspector's report will be made available at that time in accordance with the usual practice. The matter has taken longer than had earlier been hoped because of the complexity of the issues involved.
