HC Deb 01 July 1971 vol 820 cc203-4W
Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress he is making in reducing delays in the supplying and commissioning of traffic signals.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

I have held discussions with manufacturers and have persuaded them to accept reductions of up to two months in the time required for supply and commissioning. I have further invited manufacturers and they have agreed to join in a working group with my Department to review the whole procedure for supply of traffic signals so that the possibility of further reductions may be considered. This group will report to me in three months.
