asked the Minister of Transport whether he will make a further statement about the study of the developing problems of roads and traffic in urban areas.

Yes. Last October Mr. C. D. Buchanan, formerly a Principal Inspector in the Ministry of Housing and Local Government, was seconded to my Department to make a study of these problems. To help Mr. Buchanan in this work I am appointing a small Steering Group and I am glad to tell the House that Sir Geoffrey Crowther has agreed to be Chairman. The other members of the Group will be—

  • Sir William Holford.
  • Mr. O. A. Kerensky.
  • Mr. C. H. Pollard.
  • Councillor T. D. Smith.
