Road Traffic: Census

Mr. Lancaster: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what information his Department holds on (a) the cost of the recent Milton Keynes council traffic census and (b) the number of motorists questioned over the period of the census. [283683]

Mr. Khan: The road traffic counts carried out by the Department for Transport for the National Road Traffic Estimates simply count the number of vehicles passing a defined point. They do not involve questioning motorists or interfering with the traffic flow.

Mr. Jenkins: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what recent assessment has been made of the effectiveness of the West Midlands Casualty Reduction Scheme in reducing numbers of road traffic accidents in that region. [283847]
