§ Ms. Ruddock
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list the schemes which are expressways as defined under the European agreement on main international traffic arteries.
§ Mr. Chope
The European agreement on main international traffic arteries defines three types of road: motorways, express roads and ordinary roads. The concept of the express road is not contained in English domestic law, but, in practice, there is no distinction between motorways and express roads as defined in the agreement.
