HC Deb 09 July 1979 vol 970 cc80-1W
Mr. Snape

asked the Minister of Transport if he is satisfied that the direct allocation of only 15 per cent. of new construction costs to buses and lorries in estimating public road track costs is adequate in view of frequent statements that two major aims of the road programme are to remove heavy traffic from towns and villages and to provide more efficient access to factories and ports.

Mr. Fowler

I see no present grounds for alteration.
