HC Deb 17 January 1990 vol 165 cc238-9W
Dr. Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what action he is taking to assess the environmental friendliness of his Department's policies.

Mr. Atkins

The Department pays close attention to the environmental implications of its policies and many have a directly beneficial effect. For example, we are taking steps to control vehicle emissions; we build new roads to relieve congestion and bypass communities; and we are supporting massive investment in public transport. We shall be making an important contribution to the White Paper on the environment to be published later this year.
