§ Mr. John Morris
The Department has been discussing with local authorities and public transport operators the possibility of a transportation study on Tyneside. The objective would be to help to plan the development of a transport system which makes the best use of all modes of transport.
My right hon. Friend is visiting Tyneside on 6th January to discuss with the major local authorities and public transport operators how a conurbation transport authority might be set up which would have as one of its duties the planning of an integrated system of public transport for the area.
