§ Mr. Coombs
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he has any plans to modify the public inquiry procedure for major roads and motorways; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Chalker
My right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Transport and the Environment will be considering whether any changes should be made in the light of the Civil Engineering Economic Development Committee's report on pre-construction procedures for motorway and trunk road schemes, which they have just received.
