HC Deb 13 November 1969 vol 791 c125W
36. Mr. Ashton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will introduce legislation to compel local education authorities to allow school children to ride on existing special school buses even though they live within the three-mile limit providing they pay a fare.

Miss Bacon

No. Local authorities already have discretion to approach the traffic commissioners in this matter, and I feel it is best left to them.
