To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to the Written Statement of 13 June 2018 on Road Safety, HCWS761, whether the remaining £75 million of the Safer Roads Fund will be spent on road safety or incorporated into other budgets; and if he will make a statement.

As set out in that statement, £100 million has been allocated to tackle the most dangerous roads in England; that sum fully funded all bids from the local authorities concerned. Since then the Department has announced a further £420 million for local highway maintenance and repair. Other local roads funding continues to help keep our roads safe, together with investments in targeted actions such as the recent competition to develop a mobile breathalyser.
