Traffic Management Act 2004

Volume 688: debated on Tuesday 9 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Why two years have elapsed since the passing of the Traffic Management Act 2004 before consultation on orders to permit charging of utility companies who dig up roads. [HL944]

We first consulted on the operation of permit schemes in spring 2005. Issues raised from that consultation have led to substantial revisions and we are currently running a follow-up consultation.
