HC Deb 18 November 1970 vol 806 cc415-6W
Mr. Adam Hunter

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has for the Government to bear a further share of the costs borne by those local authorities in Scotland who have schemes for granting concessionary fares to retired people; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

The terms on which local authorities bear the cost of schemes for concessionary fares are governed by the relevant provisions of the Transport Act, 1968. There are no proposals to amend these.
