HC Deb 25 February 1975 vol 887 cc96-7W
Mr. Jim Lester

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) if he will examine further ways of co-ordinating and integrating transport services;

(2) In view of the need to conserve energy, if he will direct the industries concerned to examine ways of facilitating joint rail and bus long distance journeys by co-ordinating timetables.

Mr. Mulley

Local authorities and public transport operators are already obliged by the Transport Act 1968 and the Local Government Act 1972 to secure co-ordination of services as far as possible.
