§ Mr. Tom Cox
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to help local councils introduce road traffic schemes to reduce traffic flow in residential areas.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
We offer general guidance from time to time and seek to ensure that up-to-date technical material is available for local authorities to use in discharging their responsibilities.
We believe it is right where possible to put through traffic on through routes and give an emphasis for residents in residential areas.
