HC Deb 15 April 1991 vol 189 c4W
Ms. Walley

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what arrangements he has made for ensuring that the cost provision of cleaning roads and embankments, currently the responsibility of highway authorities, is transferred to those authorities due to take over responsibility for road cleaning on 1 April under the Environmental Protection Act.

Mr. McLoughlin

The control totals for highway maintenance and all other services provided for 1991–92 in the Revenue Support Grant Distribution Report (England) as amended by the Revenue Support Grant Distribution (Amendment) Report (England) take account of the clarification of responsibility for street-cleaning for non-highway purposes brought about by the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
