asked the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received about the effect of the proposal to widen the eastbound carriageway of the M4 on the north side on Great Bently, Little Benty, Wordsworth Way and adjoining roads in West Drayton; if he will reconsider this proposal; if he will consider realigning the carriageway and widening the motorway on the south side; and if he will make a statement.

Objections to the proposal to widen this section of the M4 were considered at a public inquiry in respect of the M25 motorway in 1979–80. As recommended by the inspector, I am at present giving urgent further consideration to an alternative alignment further to the south. I shall make an announcement as soon as possible.
