§ Mr. Foulkes
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland who is responsible for removing rubble and rubbish following road improvement work; who is responsible for ensuring such removal is undertaken; what is the position on the work undertaken on the Eaglesham Moor road over the past year; what contractors were involved; what action he proposes to take to ensure the rubble is removed; and if he will make a statement.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
So far as trunk roads are concerned, it would normally be a condition of the contract that the contractor reinstates the site to its former state. However, the road in question is a local road and I would suggest that the hon. Member consults Strathclyde regional council about the contract for the works.
