HC Deb 12 May 1998 vol 312 cc63-4W
Mr. Dafis

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what is the Government's policy towards the levels of freight transported internationally. [41457]

Ms Glenda Jackson

International freight movements are a reflection of economic activity. While growth in this area is evidence of a healthy economy, such traffic should take place efficiently and with regard to its environmental impact.
