HC Deb 22 March 1976 vol 908 cc39-40W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why the Countryside Commission was not consulted at all about the proposed pattern of heavy lorry routes; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Gilbert

The Countryside Commission has been fully involved in consultations about the principles to be applied to any national system of lorry routes. Discussion of the actual roads to be designated has not yet started.
