HC Deb 21 December 1989 vol 164 c358W
Mr. Prescott

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what action he has taken on the Palmer report on traffic area organisation; and if he will make a statement.

Mr Parkinson

A number of interested organisations were invited to comment on the recommendations contained in the Palmer report. These are being considered. I expect to reach decisions on the main recommendations early in the new year.
