§ Mr. Gwilym Roberts
asked the Minister of Transport what study he has made of the evidence supplied to him indicating the support given by the Staffordshire county council to the Select Committee on Nationalised Industries' recommendations on the National Bus Company; and what plans he now has to write off those debts of the National Bus Company attributable to additional mileage and to continue the new bus grant at 50 per cent. beyond 1981; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Fowler
I shall take full account of the views expressed by Staffordshire county council and others in considering my reply to the Committee's recommendations.
