HC Deb 12 November 1968 vol 773 c90W
Mr. Adam Hunter

asked the Minister of Transport if he will seek power to issue directives to local authorities in Scotland to implement that part of the Transport Act dealing with travel concessionary fares for retired people.

Mr. Bob Brown

No. The provision in the Transport Act extends considerably the powers of local authorities to help elderly people in this way. It meets their expressed desire to have wider discretionary powers than those available under the Travel Concessions Acts.
