HC Deb 22 November 1962 vol 667 c140W
Mr. Brockway

asked the Minister of Education if he will reconsider the three-mile limit for free transport for schoolchildren in view of the increase in bus charges and in the cost of living since 1944.

Sir E. Boyle

No. I do not consider that the increases in bus charges and cost of living since 1944 provide sufficient reason for reconsidering the definition of walking distance contained in the 1944 Act.
