HC Deb 21 December 1973 vol 866 c451W
Mr. Stanbrook

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will sponsor a national scheme to encourage car drivers to give lifts to pedestrians.

Mr. Peyton

I have already announced—[Vol. 866, c.2901]— relaxations of bus licensing regulations which will allow payment for such lifts. This is primarily to assist rural communities where public transport is scarce.
