I am informed that in the last three full calendar years there were two slight personal injury accidents on the B7076 at the bottom of the junction 21 northbound off-slip from the M74, both of which took place in 2015. I am, of course, happy for Oliver Mundell to make representations to my colleague Mr Yousaf, who is, primarily, dealing with the matter. Should he wish to make such representations, they will be taken—as they always are—very seriously indeed.

However, it is not unreasonable to make the point that it is the responsibility of every driver to observe safe driving practice; the prime responsibility must always rest with every single one of us to ensure that we drive safely on our roads.
