- to act as a point of contact between local authorities and DfT on statistical matters of common concern, including the statistics needed for the monitoring of Local Transport Plans, Local Indicators, Regional and Local Statistics and other relevant matters
- to review on-going data collections on the Single Data List on a rolling basis, to identify data returns or elements of data returns that are no longer appropriate
Dissemination of agendas, minutes and papers presented to the group will be through 3 channels.
Information is published:
- on the LGA Knowledge Hub by DfT within 2 weeks of the end of the meeting

Standing Committee on Road Accident Statistics
The Standing Committee on Road Accident Statistics (SCRAS) was set up in 1977 to oversee the new STATS19 process for road accident data collection.
The terms of reference of the committee are to:
- consider problems arising in the collection of data on road accidents and make recommendations
- disseminate information on techniques and procedures developed in connection with the system of accident reporting
- consider any amendments to the system that may be required and make recommendations at the time of the quinquennial review
SCRAS has continued to steer the process of accident data collection, dealing with the quinquennial reviews of the survey. The membership of the committee is drawn from a wide range of bodies and includes representatives of central, local government and the police.
A full list of members and the bodies they represent is given in the SCRAS newsletters.
