HC Deb 25 March 1964 vol 692 cc94-5W
82. Mr. Montgomery

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the anomaly created when a local authority, which grants concessionary fares on trolleybuses, changes its form of transport to diesel buses, with the result that pensioners lose their rights to any concession; and if he will introduce legislation to enable concessionary fare schemes to be continued under these circumstances.

Mr. Galbraith

The Travel Concessions Act of 1955 has inevitably produced some anomalies, of which this is one example. Legislation as suggested by my hon. Friend would not remove them all. I cannot pledge the Government to widen the scope of the Act.
