HC Deb 30 July 1984 vol 65 c76W
20. Mr. Chapman

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he is satisfied with the rules, regulations and practices relating to public inquiries for new or realigned roads.

Mrs. Chalker

We are always looking for ways of improving the public inquiry system. In particular, my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Transport and for the Environment will be considering whether any changes should be made in the light of the Vaizey report on preconstruction procedures for motorway and trunk road schemes.
