asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on his funding provision for road improvement schemes for the following areas: (a) Hayes bypass (Hillingdon and Ealing), (b) Enfield north-south route (Enfield and Haringey) and (c) Tower Hill (historic area) Precinct (Tower Hamlets).

The Hayes bypass and the north-south route were accepted for transport supplementary grant in 1985–86 and we have committed ourselves to continuing to support these schemes with TSG. In addition capital expenditure on road construction not met by TSG will attract RSG block grant. I understand that the GLC hopes to complete the Tower Hill scheme before 31 March 1986.
