asked the Secretary of State for Transport if, in his current survey as to the opinions and policies of local authority engineers on the use of edge-of-carriageway markings for reducing road accidents and reducing road maintenance costs in non-built-up areas, he has surveyed the views of Welsh counties; what were the opinions and policies expressed; and what action he will take on the results of the survey.

In so far as Welsh counties are concerned, my right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State for Wales has responsibility for these matters. Nevertheless, as part of the current survey of policies on edge-of-carriageway markings being carried out by my Department, the views of the Welsh Office, Roads Division, have been sought, and I am advised that it is consulting highway authorities in Wales. The survey is still in progress and I cannot at this stage prejudge the results of these investigations.
