§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales when he intends publishing the next edition of "Roads in Wales"; and what opportunity he has given local highway authorities in Wales to submit additional bypass schemes for inclusion in this programme, in line with the Government's announcement of enhanced bypass construction plans to combat the environmental effects of increased lorry weights.
§ Mr. Michael Roberts
We expect the next edition of "Roads in Wales" to be available early in the new year. County councils in Wales act as Welsh Office agents on trunk road matters and therefore their views are known through the Department's regular contact with them.
