§ Chris Grayling
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what changes his Department has made to the projection for car traffic growth in the period covered by the 10-year plan; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Jamieson
The 10-year plan was developed on the basis of a modelled forecast increase in all traffic in England between 2000 and 2010 of 17 per cent., compared to an increase of 22 per cent. without the plan ("Transport 2010: The Background Analysis", figure 13). The plan did not include separate figures for different vehicle types, but car traffic accounts for about 80 per cent. of vehicle kilometres travelled. No new traffic growth forecasts have been issued by the Department since the 10-year plan was published in July 2000.
The current review of the plan is being informed by further modelling, using our national model that we have been revising over the past year. We intend to publish the review in the summer.
