HC Deb 16 March 1973 vol 852 cc445-6W
Mr. Roderick

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) if he will seek to ascertain and publish the proportion of public service buses manufactured in this country which have accommodation for wheelchairs used by invalids;

(2) if he will consider introducing legislation to ensure that the design of new buses should allow for capacity to carry an invalid wheelchair.

Mr. Peyton

Quantifiable information would not be readily available. But the needs of disabled passengers, including luggage space, are being discussed with the bus industry.
