asked the Secretary of State for Wales if, on receiving a video film of the traffic problems of Shotton, Connah's Quay, and Queensferry from the Alyn-Deeside district council and on receipt of the authority's views concerning the road programmes for the alleviation of traffic congestion, he will visit the Alyn-Deeside local authority for discussions; if he has received the Clwyd county authority proposals for priority road building and improvements; and if he will make a statement.

We have not received from Alyn and Deeside council the video film or the views of the district council to which the hon. Gentleman refers. We have received a copy of Clwyd county council's roads improvement programme, which was approved by the highways sub-committee on 6 March 1985, and its bid for capital allocations and transport supplementary grant for 1986–87. We note that its future programme includes proposals for a Shotton-Connah's Quay bypass.If the Alyn and Deeside district council has views on these proposals, it should convey them to the county council. It would not be appropriate for us to discuss with the district council matters which are the responsibility of the county council.
