Select Committee on Transport, Local Government and the Regions Minutes of Evidence

Examination of Witness (Questions 140 - 141)



  140. That was not what you said. You said it was not a good starting point and you also implied that the £32 million was wasted—you were not quite so brutal.
  (Mr Steer) We are not saying that the studies have been a waste of time. We do have to accept that the way in which the remits for the studies were drawn up—this is just the fact of the matter—and the study areas did relate to perceived problems and outstanding issues with the road network not with the rail network.

  141. That is very helpful. We should like a little expansion of your views with a few hard facts to back them up, not because you do not always give us such information.
  (Mr Steer) I shall be very happy to provide that.

  Chairman: Thank you for coming.
