I thank the hon. Lady for her statement and her chairmanship of our Committee. I wish to raise a similar point to that made by Daniel Zeichner. Does the hon. Lady agree that much of the evidence we heard and that we hear from our constituents relates to frustration at repeated ineffective short-term repairs? One of the main things that this report seeks to do is set in place a funding system so that councils know how much funding they will have in the medium and long term, and can therefore plan strategically and carry out sustainable repairs to our roads.
