§ Mr. Warren
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what data he has available on failures by highway authorities to comply with section 27(2)(d) of the Countryside Act 1968; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
We have no recent information as to progress made by highway authorities in the signposting of public rights of way. Failure by an authority to comply with this statutory requirement is a matter for the courts.
