Labour says it will allow some limited road building where necessary for the economy - but wants the emphasis put on investing in public transport to cut down on greenhouse gases.

The Conservatives say that more new roads are needed, especially strategic by-passes, and that motorists should not be penalised for using their cars.

The Liberal Democrats say that new roads should be the last option - and that much more should be done to persuade people out of their cars by promoting other methods of transport.

In the poll on international aid, half the people who voted wanted the government to increase aid, half felt it should be left up to charities.
