To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment he has made of the levels of litter on the strategic road network.

I have taken a keen interest in this matter and believe more should be done.

Levels of litter on the Highways Agency network are assessed through routine inspections, customer surveys and information received from members of the public reporting littering issues on the network.

However, I intend to discuss with the Highways Agency what further steps could be taken to reduce litter on the Strategic Road Network.
