One of the most fundamental ways to do this is to tackle traffic growth itself. Later this summer a Private Members' Bill - drafted by Friends of the Earth, Plaid Cymru and the Green Party - will be introduced to Parliament by Cynog Dafis MP. The Bill sets national targets for reducing traffic: a 5 per cent reduction by 2005 and 10 per cent by 2010, based on 1990 figures. The Bill already has the support of a considerable number of MPs from all parties.
We very much hope that the Government - and indeed all MPs - will support this vital Bill which will tackle the very root of the problem: too much traffic.
