HC Deb 28 November 1986 vol 106 c371W
Sir Hugh Rossi

asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he plans to issue traffic management guidance to London boroughs as provided for in schedule 5 to the Local Government Act; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Moore

My Department and the boroughs responsible for London's highways have a shared interest in fostering well-designed traffic management in London. Discussions with the local authority associations and the police have indicated where initial guidance is most likely to be useful. The associations and the police are therefore now being formally consulted on a document incorporating guidance I am minded to give. When I have their views, I shall consider them carefully with a view to issuing guidance shortly thereafter.

Copies of the consultation document have been placed in the Library and are also being make available to local authorities and representative organisations interested in these matters.
