HC Deb 08 December 1998 vol 322 c125W
Mr. Baker

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what is the timetable for the publication of the daughter documents of the White Paper on integrated transport. [62417]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The Government have today issued their consultation document on road user charging and the workplace parking levy. The remaining daughter documents—papers on shipping, buses, sustainable distribution, road safety and inland waterways—will follow within the next few months. We will also be issuing a paper on ports policy, and confirming guidance on local transport plans, following up the draft guidance currently out to consultation. In addition, a strategy to encourage walking, produced by the Walking Steering Group, will be published by the Department early in the New Year.
