§ 22. Mr. Iain Mills
asked the Minister of Transport what consultations he has had regarding the future of road construction unit sub-units; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
Before the formal start of the action study which was announced on 9 June, we consulted the main national organisations concerned. We are consulting them, and individual county councils, on the action study. In addition, officials have visited all sub-units, meeting sub-unit staff, their union representatives and county council officials and I have asked them to give full reports to me of their discussions.
