§ Lord Underhill
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Why the Secretary of State for Transport decided to allow the appeal of Lightray Limited against a refusal of London Transport Executive to grant an agreement to run a bus service although the inspector whom he appointed to conduct an inquiry had recommended that the appeal be dismissed.
§ The Earl of Avon
My right honourable friend's reasons for deciding to allow the appeal of Lightray Limited were given in the decision letter issued on 27th July 1981, a copy of which has been placed in the Library. I am sending a copy to the noble Lord.
