HC Deb 29 November 1967 vol 755 cc118-9W
101. Mr. Wallace

asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the effects of the Road Safety Act on private motorists, she will introduce emergency legislation to prevent public transport undertakings making complete withdrawal, which would be against the public interest, of public service vehicles on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

Mr. Carmichael

No. Holiday services are a matter for the management of each public transport undertaking to decide in the light of their local knowledge. But operators have been reminded that the demand for such services may be higher this year than previously.
