HC Deb 05 February 1951 vol 483 c170W
Mr. A. Edward Davies

asked the Minister of Transport what progress has been made in setting up area schemes for road passenger services, as provided for in the Transport Act, 1947.

Mr. Barnes

The British Transport Commission have submitted to me a scheme relating to the northern area of England and, in accordance with the procedure prescribed in the Eighth Schedule to the Transport Act, 1947, I have returned it to them with my observations, and it is still under discussion with them. I have received no scheme for any other area.
