I beg to move amendment No. 170, in

page 7, line 28, after 'manager)', insert

'for a period not exceeding 5 years'.

The amendment need not be debated at tremendous length. It is designed to find out what the Government think about the proposition that a traffic manager's appointment should not exceed five years. Such an arrangement would prevent complacency and long outsourcing contracts, which would be to the detriment of future generations of local taxpayers.
