HC Deb 08 March 1967 vol 742 c278W
5. Mr. Will Griffiths

asked the Minister of Transport, how many visits she has paid to conurbations in the last six months; with whom she has consulted outside her Department; and what steps were discussed.

Mrs. Castle

I have visited four conurbations—Greater Manchester, Tyneside, Merseyside and West Midlands— and discussed with the major local authorities and public transport operators in each the form and scope which conurbation transport authorities might take.
