HC Deb 03 June 1981 vol 5 c373W
40. Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will provide extra help to those local highway authorities which are faced with deteriorating roads and insufficient funds to repair them.

Mr. Fowler

I take account of individual local authorities' road maintenance requirements each year in the transport supplementary grant settlement within the limits set for total local highway maintenance in the public expenditure survey.
