TRANSPORT SECTOR INPUT-OUTPUT 1974

I have just seen, in manuscript, your final input-output reports for the transport industries for 1974.

Various parts of your report, in its earlier stages, have already been incorporated in our tables on a provisional basis. I have no doubt that in a work of this size there will be a number of points needing clarification and further discussion, and we may of course need to modify your results in some respects when we have completed our look at the input-output results as a whole. It is perhaps too early yet to make a final assessment of the value of your work.

But on the basis of what has been looked into so far, it is clear that it does represent a major improvement in the methods of arriving at reliable estimates of the transactions of the transport industries and in the quality of the results obtained.

I must congratulate you on the thoroughness and care that have obviously been taken to arrive at these very comprehensive results. I am sure your report and methods used will be a model for preparing similar estimates for the transport sector for future years.

I am sending copies of this letter to Dr G Alexander, Head of the Energy Research Group and to Mr T R Walsh of the Transport and Road Research Laboratory.
