HC Deb 26 March 1996 vol 274 c552W
Dr. Lynne Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the relationship of economic growth and traffic growth and its impact on the environment; and what assessment he has made of future trends. [22361]

Mr. Norris

I refer to the answer that I gave to the hon. Member on 18 March 1996,Official Report, column 44. Forecasts of a number of environmental impacts are already prepared—for example, of vehicle emissions— which take into account the impacts from traffic growth.
