asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether the 1980 national road maintenance condition survey showed significant deterioration in any of the surveyed type of defect for trunk roads between 1979 and 1980; and if so, what steps he is taking to correct such deterioration.

The national road maintenance condition survey monitors nine different types of surface defect in trunk roads. The survey results in 1980 showed an increase over the previous year for two defects, no change in two others and a reduction in the remaining five. The underlying trend in the survey for trunk roads is one of stable condition since 1977. We shall continue to monitor the survey results and will aim to devote sufficient resources to the maintenance of trunk roads to prevent deterioration.

asked the Secretary of State for Transport when the results for the 1981 national road maintenance condition survey will be published.
