HC Deb 04 December 1995 vol 268 c60W
Mr. Hargreaves

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will issue guidelines to ensure compensation will be provided for accidents involving faulty paving stones of less than lin in height. [3332]

Mr. Norris

No. In any claim for compensation for injury allegedly caused by a defective pavement, it is for the courts to decide whether a highway authority's refusal to accept liability is reasonable in the light of the circumstances of the case.
