To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many school run car journeys he estimates were made in each year since 1997, broken down by the smallest available geographical unit. (226697)

Data on the number of school run car journeys are not available centrally. However, figures on the proportion of trips to school by mode and region are published in Regional Transport Statistics. The 2007 Edition of this publication is available on the Department for Transport's website at:

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what percentage of schools in England he estimates have a travel plan in place. (226698)

Nearly 70 per cent. of schools currently have a travel plan in place and we are on track to meet our target of all schools to have a travel plan by 2010.
