16. Richard Younger-Ross

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what assessment he has made of the threat to strategic road and rail routes from global warming. [173508]

Mr. McNulty

The Department is aware that climate change will have a profound impact on both the Department's work and that of the delivery agencies. To this end, assessments have been made by the Department, the Rail Safety and Standards Board and the Highways Agency. The Department's report can be found on our website and copies of this and of the other reports can be found in both libraries of the House.
