HC Deb 13 July 1972 vol 840 c404W
54. Mr. Scott-Hopkins

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the average mileage that children of primary school age travel to school in rural areas; and if she will expedite the inquiry into school transport.

Mrs. Thatcher

I am sure that the working party on school transport will complete its report as quickly as is consistent with doing a thorough job. Information on the first part of my hon. Friend's question is not available.
