§ Mr. Ronald Atkins
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what opportunities exist for the public to criticise or cross-examine his Department's road traffic forecasts; and if he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Gilbert
My right hon. Friend and I already deal with a considerable volume of correspondence about the forecasts which, as I told the hon. Member for the Isle of Wight (Mr. Ross) on 18th February—[Vol. 905, c.710]—will also be among the subjects covered in our forthcoming consultative paper on trapsport policy.
