A13: Litter

Volume 508: debated on Monday 29 March 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport for what reasons (a) the Highways Agency and (b) he has not replied to a letter from Thurrock borough council on contract compliance in respect of the Connect Plus Group's obligation to collect rubbish and litter from, and to clean, the A13 highway in Thurrock; and if he will make a statement. (324228)

The Highways Agency received a letter regarding this matter on 2 February from Thurrock borough council and it was copied to the Secretary of State for Transport. An email response was sent by the Highways Agency on 4 February 2010. Subsequently, a senior representative of the Highways Agency met with the council's Cabinet Member for Environmental Services to resolve the issues concerning litter on the A13 in Thurrock.

I am not aware of any other correspondence from Thurrock borough council regarding this matter.
