§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to receive the report of the Road Research Laboratory on the effects of heavy vehicles on underground services; in what form he expects to publish it; and what consultations he intends to make before making any subsequent decisions.
§ Mr. Graham Page:
The work being carried out at the Transport and Road Research Laboratory covers all types of loads on the various kinds of pipelines 32W used for sewage and water supply. Results are published from time to time by the laboratory. Subsequent action will of course depend on those results.
