§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what are the implications of the recommendations of the Armitage report for the dry stone walling along the A5, A55 and A470; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Roberts
The risk of damage to dry stone walling alongside roads ought not to be increased by the82W recommendations of the Armitage report, because individual axle loadings on heavier vehicles would be similar to those of existing vehicles.
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport is currently considering all the implications of the report.
