§ Mr. Perkins
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport what steps he has taken to relieve the omnibus situation in the Stroud Valleys in view of the increase in population.
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
The Regional Transport Commissioner has authorised a strengthening of the services on seven local routes. This is an experimental measure, and will be subject to review, if circumstances should require a further change. The increased services will come into operation very shortly. I am sending the details to my hon. Friend.
