I have today published a summary of the responses received to the Government's consultation on "Delivering a Sustainable Transport System: Consultation on Planning for 2014 and Beyond". Copies have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses, and are available on the Department's website (www.dft.gsi.gov.uk).

There were over 500 responses to the consultation. The great majority supported economic growth and tackling climate change as the most important challenges, with over half identifying climate change as the single most important challenge to be addressed. There was also support for the approach to decision-making we proposed.

The Government have given careful consideration to the issues raised by stakeholders, and the document I have published today summarises how we intend to take them into account when developing packages of transport measures.
