DETR Ministers have had frequent contact with representatives from AA and RAC during the integrated transport consultation exercise and in the lead up to the publication of the Transport White Paper.

§ Mr. Dafis
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions which organisations and individuals outside Government he met to talk about transport policy and the Transport White1094W Paper during the three months before publication of the White Paper; and how many of these meetings were attended by employees of professional lobby consultants. 
§ Mr. Prescott
In the three months prior to the publication of the Transport White Paper, I met with representatives of the Passenger Transport Executives, rail, bus, road and shipping interests as well as users and Non-Governmental Organisations. In addition, I had several meetings with the specially constituted White Paper Advisory Panel which I had set up to assist with the fundamental review of transport policy. The discussions and the written representations we received played an important role in informing the development of our integrated transport policy.
