§ Mr. Alexander
asked the Minister of Transport what progress he has made in implementing his proposals for the future operation of the motorway service areas.
§ Mr. Fowler
My officials have held two meetings with representatives from the operating companies to explain my proposals and to discuss matters of general application. We are in touch with the AA and RAC about the feasibility of the independent assessment and "star-rating" system proposed in my statement of 22 October.—[Vol. 972, c. 80.]
