HC Deb 26 June 1995 vol 262 c443W
Mr. Sheerman

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what proposals he has to bring forward his new initiatives aimed at reducing urban road congestion. [30490]

Mr. Norris

Local authority circular 2/95, giving guidance on transport policies and programme submissions for 1996–97, makes—clear that in providing funds for local authorities through the TPP system, the Department will give particular priority to measures which reduce road congestion.

The Government will be responding shortly to the Transport Select Committee's report on urban road pricing.
