§ Mr. Waldegrave
The percentage split of total expenditure on roads (including road bridges) by local authorities in England between repairs and maintenance and capital projects is as follows: 429W
1980–81 1981–82 1982–83 1983–84* Road maintenance 62 68 65 67 Capital projects 38 32 35 33 100 100 100 100 * Percentage estimate.
Separate information on expenditure on road bridges is not held centrally.
In England responsibility for sewerage services rests with the water authorities and where a local authority acts as an agent for a water authority the expenditure incurred is reimbursed fully by the water authority. Some expenditure on sewerage may be incurred by local authorities on their own estates but separate information on this expenditure is not held centrally.
