asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has made a new agreement with ROSPA for its road safety work in England.

I pay tribute to the work ROSPA has achieved in the past and to the challenge it has set for the future.A new agreement has just been signed. It follows extensive discussion with ROSPA, and reflects ROSPA's new marketing-led, business-orientated approach to road safety. The views of the local authority associations have been taken into account. ROSPA has set itself ambitious but achievable targets for streamlining and improving cost-effectiveness. Grant for England will be for £530,000 in 1987–88 but will reduce as ROSPA achieves its longterm plans. Additional grant will continue to be available for specific activities which offer good value for money.
