HC Deb 15 July 1970 vol 803 c1523
46. Mr. Judd

asked the Minister of Transport what consideration he has given to the report entitled, "Towards 1990—An Independent Proposal for the Integration of Public Transport in Wessex", a copy of which is in his possession.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

This report, recently received, is being studied by my Department.

Mr. Judd

I thank the hon. Gentleman for that reply, but will he not agree that, in view of the inadequacy of the transport system in the area and the plans for extensive development, there is an urgent need for a better integrated transport system in Wessex?

Mr. Heseltine

The report was received only on 3rd July. While there are many interesting aspects to it, including the relationship which it may have with the South Hampshire Study, we must have more time to consider it.
