asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will name all the groups, bodies and organisations which are regularly consulted on highway, traffic and transport matters.

We consult interests concerned on a whole range of transport matters, ranging from detailed highway and traffic matters, to wider questions of transport policy. The extent and regularity of our consultations vary with the subject. They also depend on whether the issues involved are at the international, national, regional or local level, on the degree of public interest and on statutory requirements. A comprehensive list of organisations would be extremely long and would not bring out which bodies were consulted on which matters. My right hon. Friend is always willing to consider the claims of other organisations to be consulted.
