§ 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.
