HC Deb 23 January 1975 vol 884 cc491-2W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the proportion of cancelled journeys in all of the subsidiaries of the National Bus Company which, in a recent stated period, can be attributed to a shortage of spare bus or coach parts.

Mr. Carmichael

The information is not available in the form requested, but I understand that at any time over the past six months the National Bus Company has had between 250 and 300 vehicles out of service which had been waiting for four weeks or more for spare parts.
