HC Deb 12 February 1980 vol 978 cc595-6W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Transport if he will impose stricter cash limits on the operation of London Transport, through the mechanism of the transport supplementary grant, in order to compel the elimination of the waste of expenditure disclosed in the report by Mr. Leslie Chapman.

Mr. Fowler

The statutory responsibility for the policy and financial control of the London Transport Executive rests with the Greater London Council. It has asked the executive to submit proposals for action in areas where economies can be made within two months.
