HC Deb 23 December 1964 vol 704 c295W
60. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Transport if he will specify the steps taken by his Department in the last 10 years to improve transport services in North-East Scotland.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The provision of transport services has been and is a matter for the operators and it is for them to promote improvement of services, having regard to changing level of demand. Since 1st April, 1956, the Secretary of State for Scotland has been responsible for roads in Scotland.
