§ Dr. Edmund Marshall
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment which trunk roads in England and Wales he proposes should cease to be trunk roads; and when he expects this change to take place.261W
§ Dr. Gilbert
We are asking local authorities to take over a number of roads whose trunk function has been lost to other roads. The total mileage which will be deleted from the network and the timing of such detrunking will depend on the outcome of current discussions.
Trunk roads in Wales are the responsibility of my right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State for Wales.
