Volume 475: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

17. To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what recent discussions he has had with ministerial colleagues at the Department for Transport on the effect on climate change of transport-related carbon dioxide emissions. (202806)
