Can the right hon. Gentleman indicate how much is to be spent and give a comparative figure to show whether there is to be any increase in "The Plan Ahead" which is deemed by many people to be disappointing in its reference to major roadworks?
Yes. The present Welsh commitments for motorways, trunk and principal roads amount to £14·3 million. This figure will increase, as suggested, as a result of the new scheme the Government have authorised.
