This is not new stuff. I just wanted to bring this important evidence it to the fore in its own post.

Below is an extract from a briefing note prepared by the DfT for the then Roads Minister, John Hayes MP in 2016.

It shows he was blatantly misled on the responsibility of Highways England in regard to litter. HE have a statutory duty under EPA S89 to ensure that the motorways etc are kept clear of litter so far as is practicable. The duty is not just to “clear litter” (i.e. as and when their contractors might get round to it).
