Volume 470: debated on Friday 25 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when a copy of the full progress report on the A5-M1 link will be sent to the hon. Member for South West Bedfordshire. (180649)

[holding answer 21 January 2008]: Following the meeting of officials with the hon. Gentleman and representatives of regional groups in December 2007, opportunities to advance the scheme have been reviewed.

I have asked that all these opportunities should be considered before the report is finalised. The Government Office for the East of England is working with the Department for Transport and other partners to finalise the report. I expect to receive the report during February 2008 and will send a copy of it to the hon. Member for South West Bedfordshire as soon as possible.
