§ Mr. Steel
asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects the consultative paper reviewing the provisions in the Highways Act 1980 for the stopping-up and diversion of highways to be published; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Ridley
The consultative paper was issued on 3 April 1985. Copies have been placed in the Library. We are considering the responses to the paper, and I will make an announcement in due course.
