asked the Secretary of State for Wales when he expects to receive the final report of consulting engineers into routes for bypasses around the five villages on the A5 on Anglesey; if any route has yet been finalised; if it is proposed to finalise some routes earlier than others; and if he will make a statement.
As my hon. Friend knows, we expect to receive by the end of the year the consultants' formal report on the extent of the need for bypasses of the five villages. This will include an assessment of environmental benefits as well as the likely cost effectiveness of the proposals. Final decisions on routes and decisions on priorities must await this report.
