HC Deb 22 June 1971 vol 819 cc267-8W
Mr. Tom King

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether relevant statistics are yet available on the accident rate with one-man buses as opposed to those operated by a crew.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

Indications are that casualties incurred while boarding or alighting are very much lower with one-man operated buses than with other buses. I am seeking information on collision accidents and will write to my hon. Friend.
