To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to publish details of the highway engineering measures his Department is taking to achieve the trunk road share of the national target of reducing road accident casualties by one third by the year 2000.

I am arranging for copies of the departmental trunk road safety plan to be placed in the Libraries of both Houses of Parliament, along with copies of the regional safety plans that are separately produced in the Department's regional offices.These plans detail the many actions and resources the Department is putting into highway engineering measures to reduce accident casualties on trunk roads. I am pleased to say that these measures are reducing deaths and injuries and are working towards meeting our share of the national target.
