§ Mr. Giles Shaw
asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether the North-Eastern Road Construction Unit gave written authority to the Pudsey Motorway 854W Action Group to reproduce additional questionnaires during the public consultation exercise on the Kirkhampton-Dishforth route; and if he will make a statement to this effect.
§ Mr. Horam
We wrote to the action group in August 1975 to let it know that opinions expressed on any questionnaire forms which the group had already reproduced would be taken into account by us only if they were completed on an individual basis. I do not think it necessary that representations by the public should be in a particular form for them to be taken into account in our assessment of the results of consultation.
