Government policies to reduce congestion will target 'unnecessary' car journeys, and half empty lorries, reports the Financial Times (p15).

Transport secretary George Young told a Confederation of British Industry dinner last night that public opinion had swung firmly against more road building, and ways needed to be found of making more efficient use of the existing network.

The FT says it is not yet clear whether the government favours charging for road use, or whether other means of restraint are planned. A transport policy statement is planned for the spring.
