HC Deb 17 July 1995 vol 263 cc872-3W
Ms Glenda Jackson

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to include transport safety in the list of main questions in his consultation document "Transport: The Way Ahead"; and what factors underlay its initial exclusion. [34895]

Sir George Young

The broad theme of "Transport: The Way Ahead" is the balance in transport policy between promotion of economic growth, protection of the environment and support for personal choice. Transport safety can affect this balance: some of the issues are touched upon in the paper—see paragraphs 1.25, 2.25, 5.22 and 5.33.

I would welcome any contributions which explored these issues further.
