§ Mr. Michael Latham
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many meetings of the Central Transport Consultative Committee took place in 1974; and what action he has taken as a result of those meetings.
§ Mr. Mulley
The committee met four times, as set out in its annual report which was presented to Parliament on 12th February 1975. I met the committee myself to discuss future railway investment and staff shortages, while my Department is following up with the Department of Health and Social Security the committee's recommendation about fares for disabled passengers.
