98. Mr. Alan Lee
Williams asked the Minister of Transport if she will make available details of the economic and statistical information on which she based her recent White Paper, The Transport of Freight, Command 3470.
§ Mrs. Castle
Some of this information is contained in the White Paper itself, e.g. the data on freight traffic by road and rail, broken down by distance, presented in Appendix 1. New material on the costs and revenues of the road system will be published in my Department's forthcoming report on road track costs. Lastly, the study of the comparative economics of road and rail trunk transport (The Transport Cost Model) is now nearing completion and the principal results will be published. Preliminary findings have already proved of great value.
