asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the recent publication of the long-term road plan for Lancashire, he will indicate by what date he anticipates that similar plans will be published for all counties in the United Kingdom; and what steps have been, or will be taken, to co-ordinate these plans with those of his own Department.

I cannot say whether any further similar plans will be published or when, since this is a matter for the decision of the county councils. My staff have maintained and will continue to maintain close touch with each county surveyor so as to ensure proper co-ordination of long-term trunk road proposals and the plans of the county councils.
