HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 cc181-2W
63. Mr. Park

asked the Minister of Transport if he will introduce legislation enabling old people in areas served by privately-owned transport undertakings to secure concessionary fares.

Mr. Tom Fraser

No. I would refer my hon. Friend to the Answer given on 22nd November to my hon. Friend the Member for Gravesend (Mr. Murray).

77. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Transport if he will take steps to enable all publicly-owned transport undertakings in Scotland to grant concessionary fares to pensioners.

Mr. Tom Fraser
