HC Deb 21 July 1994 vol 247 c531W
Mr. Soley

To ask the President of the Board of Trade, pursuant to his answer of 18 July,Official Report, column 23, regarding damage by cabling companies, if he will in future monitor and publish a list of incidents of damage; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Heseltine

Enforcement of the street works requirements of the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 is the responsibility of the street authority concerned. Instances of damage arising from street works would normally come to their attention during the exercise of their functions under the Act, and it would be for individual authorities to decide whether to publish a list of incidents.
