This two-volume document is a review of the British government's transport policy. Main objectives of the policy are: Efficiency in terms of resources used; priority to social welfare aspects of transport; protection of the community from unwarranted impact on the environment; resource conservation, particularly energy; democratic decision making and freedom of choice on the part of users; assurance that change be accomplished in context of full trade union involvement; control of public expenditure particularly confinement of subsidies to areas of greatest need. This so-called Green Paper devotes major attention to subisidies for British Rail and its future role. The paper includes a section comparing the British situation to that of the railway systems of other members of the European Economic Community. It is concluded that taxation and subsidy must be considered together to achieve sensible pricing and transport policy must be coordinated at all levels.
