HC Deb 12 December 1983 vol 50 c372W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what steps he takes to ensure that local authorities in Wales have adequate financial resources to sustain bus services in their areas.

Mr. John Stradling Thomas

My right hon. Friend provides a block rate support grant to each county and district council. It is subsequently for them to decide how much should be spent to support bus services in their areas.
