HC Deb 17 December 1968 vol 775 c344W
Mr. Ashton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the fact that the recent 5d. tax increase on petrol will be refunded to bus companies to prevent increases in bus fares, and that in rural areas bus services are infrequent and sometimes non-existent, if he will seek to provide tax relief or a cheaper road fund licence for people on low incomes who need private transport to get to work.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I am afraid that this would not be practicable.
