Select Committee on Transport, Local Government and the Regions Fourth Report


Transport Sub-Committee Press Notice No. 36, of Session 2001/02, 30 January 2002

The Transport Sub-Committee of the Transport, Local Government and the Regions Committee invited Lord Birt to provide oral evidence to the inquiry into the 10 Year Plan in his capacity as a strategy adviser on transport to the Forward Strategy Unit of the Cabinet Office.

We have been informed that Lord Birt will not be accepting that invitation. This Committee has a locus in the work of Lord Birt's team and we believe that he should come before the Committee.

It is important that those engaged in policy should be accountable to Parliament through the Select Committee system.
