asked the Minister of Transport whether, because of the level of cash limits for 1979–80, the amount of trunk road construction achieved fell be low that which had been planned.
I refer the hon. member to the replies to the hon. Member for Dearne Valley (Mr. Wainwright) on 30 January.—[Vol. 977, c. 699–700.] Final figures of outturn expenditure on motorway and trunk road construction are not yet available, but are expected to be equivalent to about £287 million at 1979 survey prices.
