HC Deb 05 July 1978 vol 953 c201W
52. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will make a further statement about his inquiries into the efficiency of public transport in London's peripheral areas, such as Epping Forest.


Planning and operation of bus services are matters for the operators and local authorities, but the quality of planned services depends on the availability of buses and staff. London Country Bus Services is gradually getting a more reliable fleet of buses but staff shortage is a problem.
