Live coverage of a 90-minute parliamentary debate where MPs will put pressure on the government to give the green light to a major upgrade of the A47.

Roads minister Robert Goodwill will be questioned on the progress of a feasibility study for the route stretching from Great Yarmouth into the Midlands, during the Westminister Hall backbench session. It comes ahead of the Autumn Statement later this year, when a decision on the route is likely to be made.

The A47, along with the A12 to Lowestoft, is among seven studies which are being carried out for the Department for Transport.
