HC Deb 15 December 1971 vol 828 cc122-3W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why he will not introduce legislation to compel bus companies to provide half fares for children up to the school-leaving age.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

Concessions for children have normally to be met out of higher fares for adults. This is a matter in the first instance for the commercial judgment of operators.
