The publication of the Wood Inquiry Report "The Effects of Bans on HGV's in Long" last summer and the subsequent decision by GLC to bring forward specific proposals for night-time and week-end bans of HGVs makes consideration of lorry bans topical. The aims of the paper (which is presented in an abstract form) are: a) to outline the circumstances which called the Wood Panel of Inquiry into being late in 1981 and the nature of the task it was set; B) to describe the problems posed by the limitations of data in assessing the effects of lorry bans; c) to discuss the balance of findings in the report for each of the bans considered under the main headings of economic and environmental effects; and d) to assess the likely outcome for London in the light of reactions to the report and of subsequent events.
