HC Deb 07 November 1979 vol 973 c203W
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.
