HC Deb 03 June 1981 vol 5 cc372-3W
38. Mr. Haselhurst

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he has made an assessment of the effect to date on bus services in rural areas of the provisions of the Transport Act 1980; and if will make a statement.

Mr. Fowler

A number of local authorities, local bus operators and voluntary organisations have taken advantage of the relaxation in bus licensing provisions to improve both conventional and unconventional transport services in rural areas. I hope that many more will do so.
