asked the Secretary of State for Transport what use his Department is making of independent transport and travel consultancies.

Mr. Ridley

My Department employs management, computer and advertising consultants and also uses consultants in a number of specific areas such as the design and construction of roads, public transport and research. We also have financial consultants for privatisation schemes. If my hon. Friend has any particular area of interest, I would be glad to provide more detailed information.
