Roads: Repairs and Maintenance

Volume 479: debated on Monday 29 September 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport with reference to the answers of 12 July 2007, Official Report, columns 1579-80W, on A69, Greenhead, if she will publish the letter dated 1 December 1982 sent by her Department to the Northumberland county council headed notes for the guidance of engineers employed in connection with trunk road schemes, together with all the said guidance notes. (223126)

[holding answer 10 September 2008]: I refer my hon. Friend to the answer of 26 November 2007, Official Report, column 23W, on Roads: Construction. The guidance notes that were placed in the Libraries of the House in November 2007 were incomplete, but they were all that could be found on file within the Highways Agency and the Treasury Solicitor's Department at that time. The cost of searching for the missing guidance notes now would be disproportionate.
