HC Deb 31 January 1991 vol 184 c622W
Sir David Steel

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement concerning the closure of lanes on the Edinburgh ring route; and whether the cost of repairs will be borne by central Government.

Mr. Lang

The Edinburgh city bypass is a local road. Responsibility for the maintenance of the bypass is consequently a matter for Lothian regional council as the local roads authority.
