HC Deb 21 May 1984 vol 60 c337W
Mr. Iain Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will introduce legislation to change the definition of the public interest in matters concerning bus stage operation licensing to include a statutory obligation towards those ratepayers who subsidise the bus operation.

Mrs. Chalker

As I said, in reply to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for Keighley (Mr. Waller) on 14 February at column 115, we are having a thorough study made of bus licensing and hope to be able to make a full announcement in the early summer.
