HC Deb 24 February 1970 vol 796 c279W
71. Mr. Dudley Smith

asked the Minister of Transport if he will give a general direction to the National Bus Company to carry out an assessment of the financial effects of the operation of concessionary bus fares for pensioners.

Mr. Mulley

No. Local authorities which use their discretionary powers to arrange for these travel concessions on non-municipal bus services are required to reimburse to the operator the cost which he incurs.
