To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what advice the South East of England Regional Assembly has given in connection with the proposed A21 upgrade.

The joint Treasury/DTI/DfT/ODPM document, "Regional Funding Allocations—Guidance on Preparing Advice", published in July 2005, included indicative annual spending guidelines for expenditure on housing, transport and economic development, and explained the basis of the regional advice that the Government would like to receive by the end of January 2006.

I am aware that the South East Transport Board has recently considered the relative priority of a number of major transport projects, including some on the A21. However the Board has not completed its work and when it has, its views will feed into the wider advice requested. I expect that advice to be submitted to Government in January next year.
