HC Deb 19 June 1972 vol 839 c19W
Mr. Dunnett

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether, in order to combat and deter late night hooliganism on public transport by enabling bus crews to call the police in case of emergency, he will consider grant aiding the installation of two-way radio in buses already in service just as he now grant aids the installation of such radios in new buses.

Mr. Peyton

Grants are currently available for installing two-way radio in buses already in service if it forms part of a bus control system designed to improve the reliability of services This equipment would no doubt be of value in the circumstances the hon. Member describes.
