London, HMSO 1977.
Folio. xiii + (1) + 207 + (1)pp. Publisher’s printed wrappers. Prof.Gerald Smart’s copy, with his ownership inscription.
Report of the Leitch Committee, set up to consider the Department of Transport’s procedures for appraising road schemes and the Department’s forecasting of traffic volumes. The report was useful for its factual content but was deliberately uncontroversial (”those who are looking to our report for a critique of the trunk road programme will not find it”).
