HC Deb 31 July 1974 vol 878 c296W
Mr. Trotter

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether the Government will amend the regulations for the construction of buses so as to provide for easier access for disabled persons.

Mr. Mulley

Research is being undertaken into a number of bus design features which affect the disabled, including access. Until firm conclusions are reached it would be premature to amend the appropriate regulations, but this possibility will be kept under consideration.
