§ Mr. Watkinson
asked the Secretary of State for Transport (1) how much money has been spent on the Headway and Co-operative Headway measurement and control system projects;
(2) how many persons have been involved in the Headway and Co-operative Headway measurement and control system.
§ Mr. Horam
There were two such projects between 1972 and 1976. One cost about £64,000, with the expense equally shared between the Transport and Road Research Laboratory (TRRL) and Joseph Lucas Ltd. The other was carried out by the Royal Radar Establishment (RRE) as contractor for TRRL, at a cost of £242,000.
Two Lucas and five RRE staff have been involved, not all full-time, as well as four man-years of effort at TRRL.
