§ 59. Mr. Trippier
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has further considered the anomalies which arise from local authorities determining the cost of bus passes for pensioners.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
I have reviewed the sorts of variations which occur between local authority schemes, and in particular I have taken note of the views which local authorities have themselves expressed on concessionary fares. I confirm that I have no present intention of introducing a nationwide scheme, but I shall continue to monitor the situation.
