HC Deb 03 December 1984 vol 69 c39W
26. Dr. Marek

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what recent representations he has received regarding the provision of rail services in passenger transport executive areas.

Mr. David Mitchell

In the last three months I have received a small number of specific inquiries from hon. Members and the public on the future of PTE supported services. I have also received some related comments during consultations on our proposals for abolishing the metropolitan county councils and for the introduction of competition to local bus services.
