HC Deb 04 May 1966 vol 727 c108W
59. Mr. Stodart

asked the Minister of Transport if she will seek powers to ensure that public service vehicles are fitted with up-to-date equipment, and that efficient heating apparatus is included in this equipment.

Mr. Swingler

My right hon. Friend already has power to prescribe the equipment to be carried by public service vehicles. Heating equipment, however, is left to the bus operators' discretion. She has no general evidence to suggest that it should be made a prescribed requirement.
