HC Deb 25 November 1993 vol 233 c101W
Mr. Dunn

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he next proposes to review his Department's national road traffic forecasts.

Mr. Key

The current forecasts, published in 1989, remain the Government's best view of the likely future growth in traffic. The forecasts and the methodology behind them are, however, kept under regular review. The Department is currently commissioning research to examine possible improvements to the methodology, and has made arrangements for experts in traffic modelling and other relevant fields to provide advice for the same purpose.
