HC Deb 28 June 1988 vol 136 c198W
Mr. Pawsey

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is the traffic density on British motorways; and what are the comparable figures in Germany, France and Italy.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

[pursuant to his reply, 16 June 1988, c. 257–8]: I made a mistake in my answer. The 1985 figures for each country are correct. The 1987 figure for Great Britain should be 44,400 vehicles per day, not 40,800 as quoted. I apologise for the error.
