HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 cc38-9W
35. Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he is now in a position to make a statement about proposed arrangements for London pensioners' travel passes.

52. Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what further consultations he has had, and what conclusions he has reached, concerning the future of retirement pensioners' travel facilities in Greater London.

Mrs. Chalker

I hope that the hon. Member is explaining to the pensioners on whose fears the GLC are unscrupulously playing that there is a clear two years for working out the concessionary fare arrangements which the London Boroughs Association have agreed should become their responsibility. Discussions among London boroughs are continuing.
