HC Deb 24 November 1960 vol 630 cc136-7W
84. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Transport what progress he has made in his consultations with local authorities' associations with a view to preparing a general circular announcing the revision of the basis for estimating future traffic volumes laid down in Circular 727 of 30th April, 1956.

Mr. Marples

The general circular on the design of roads in rural areas to which I referred in my reply to the hon. Member on 9th November has now been drafted by a technical panel on which highway authority engineers, the Road Research Laboratory and my Department were represented. I shall be consulting the local authorities associations very shortly.
