§ 66. Sir H. Harrison
asked the Minister of Transport whether she will give the names and qualifications of the special team on road pricing referred to in paragraph 53 of Command Paper No. 3057; and when she expects to publish a report on it.
§ Mr. Swingler
It is not usual to publish the names of civil servants staffing particular units. There will not necessarily be a published report on this research work.

asked the Minister of Transport if she will make a statement on her policy of road pricing for motorists in London and her recent visit to the United States of America, setting out those matters relating to traffic control about which she received valuable information.
§ Mrs. Castle
On road pricing and on my recent visit to the United States of America I have nothing to add to the Answers given to my hon. Friend the Member for West Ham, North (Mr. Arthur Lewis) and the hon. Member for Haltemprice (Mr. Wall) on 2nd November, 1966—[Vol. 735, c.117.]—and to the hon. Member for Bodmin (Mr. Bessell) on 9th November, 1966.—[Vol 735, c. 296.]
Concerning traffic control, which was not in any case the primary purpose of my visit, I had discussions on a number of points, such as traffic signal systems and parking policies which are of particular interest to us in view of the similar techniques we are developing in this country.
