Some of the filthiest roads in my constituency, the M60 and the M67, are under the ownership of Highways England and it is clear that its maintenance arrangements are not adequate?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport – in the House of Commons at 11:30 am on 16th July 2015.

A Gwynne MPAndrew Gwynne MP:

When the Minister next meets the chief executive of Highways England to discuss the condition of the strategic road network, will he also have a word about the litter on that network, because some of the filthiest roads in my constituency, the M60 and the M67, are under the ownership of Highways England and it is clear that its maintenance arrangements are not adequate?

Andrew Jones Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Transport):

I will be having a monthly meeting with the chief executive of Highways England and I will raise that point with him. To be fair to Highways England, they are not the people who deposit the litter in the first place.

BUT, Mr Jones, they are the people who are supposed to ensure the network is kept clear of litter.
