HC Deb 02 November 1995 vol 265 c469W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what changes will take place on transport matters when the city of Nottingham becomes a unitary authority; and if he will make a statement. [40914]

Mr. Norris

On becoming a unitary authority, the city of Nottingham would become a highway and traffic authority, with direct responsibility for the local roads in its area. In exercising these and its existing responsibilities we would expect the new authority to work closely with its neighbours at the strategic level to deliver improved local transport services.
