To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the funding for new road proposals announced in the Budget 2020 on 11 March will include a new road from the eastern end of the M65 to join the A59 west of Skipton, the “A56 and village bypass”, or a part of that proposal.

The Second Road Investment Strategy, published alongside the Budget, refers to the Central Pennines study which is continuing to consider how road connections from the eastern end of the M65 in Colne could be improved. No funding has been committed for the construction of any new infrastructure as a result of this study yet.
