§ Mr. Sheerman
asked the Secretary of State for Transport when, in the light of the submissions he has received form transport appraisal experts in support of higher casualty costs, he expects to conduct a further review of the casualty cost question.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
We announced in May, following consultation with transport appraisal experts and others, that we were increasing the values of both time and accident costs. The Department is always ready to consider fresh expert evidence that would help us develop our appraisal techniques.
