HC Deb 09 December 1985 vol 88 cc428-9W
Mr. Michael Brown

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is the latest position with regard to payments by his Department to the Birse Farr joint venture for remedial works carried out to joints on the M25 Reigate-Leatherhead section; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Chalker

No payments for remedial work to joints have been made. Our consulting engineers have not yet received full and detailed particulars of any claim in this respect.

Mr. Macfarlane

asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many deaths there have been as a result of motor accidents on the M25; and if he will list their location.

Mrs. Chalker

Up to and including June 1985, there were 26 fatalities on the M25 as a result of road accidents. I regret that identifying the locations of each of these would involve disproportionate cost.
