HL Deb 13 October 1981 vol 424 c366WA
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.
