§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will instruct the Welsh Economic Council to draw up 121W a detailed transport plan for Wales with full integration of rail and road services.
§ Mr. Cledwyn Hughes
My right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport is at present considering the powers of the Regional Transport Authorities which were forecast in the White Paper on Transport Policy (Cmnd. 3057). In the short term, it is the function of the passenger transport co-ordinating committee for Wales to secure improvements in transport co-ordination by voluntary means. The Committee has close links with the Welsh Economic Council and the Welsh Planning Board.
