HC Deb 22 January 1982 vol 16 cc204-5W
Mr. O'Halloran

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received regarding the need for the introduction of a Bill to enable the Greater London Council to continue to run its scheme for concessionary fares for the elderly and disabled in its present form; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Howell

I have received 21 letters calling for continuation of concessionary fares in London. I announced in the House of Commons on 18 January that the Government were willing to legislate to give the GLC the same powers as other local authorities to operate a concessionary fares scheme.—[Vol. 16, c. 32.]
