§ 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 137W 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.
