Administrative / Biographical History
The Ministry of Transport was first established by the Ministry of Transport Act 1919. The Act provided for the transfer to the new Ministry of powers and duties of any government department in respect of highways (from the Local Government Board), light railways (from the board of Trade), tramways, canals and inland waterways, roads, bridges and ferries, vehicles and traffic thereon, harbours, docks and piers. In 1970 it was merged into the Department of the Environment (the transport function was returned to a reconstituted Department of Transport in 1976).
