My honourable friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport (Chris Mole) has made the following Ministerial Statement.
I regret to inform the House that some of the figures in the Answer I gave to Parliamentary Questions 298819-298839 on 11 November (Official Report, cols. 368W, 369W and 370W) about the spend to date, forecast future spend and total projected costs of Highways Agency road schemes contained inaccuracies.
Subsequently errors were found in some non-major project schemes arising from arithmetical error; reporting of 2009-10 costs only; and error in data entry in the table containing the 116 Highways Agency road schemes.
The Highways Agency has prepared a revised table. The table has been placed in the Libraries of the House.
