§ 88. Mr. Malcolm MacMillan
asked the Minister of Transport what conclusions he has drawn from area studies of rural bus service problems; and what steps he intends to take to assist rural communities in these areas and in the Highlands and Islands.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to an earlier Question today by the hon. Member for Basingstoke (Mr. Mitchell) about the results of the local enquiries and experiments in England and Wales. Transport questions in the Highlands and Islands are also specifically considered by the Highland Transport Board.
