HC Deb 12 December 1985 vol 88 c772W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will find out from European Economic Community sources whether the Deutsche Touring company, a wholly owned subsidiary of the German State Railways, possesses a licence registered with the European Economic Community for the bus journey from Ostend to Frankfurt.

Mr. David Mitchell

The decision whether to authorise a service between Ostend and Frankfurt is a matter for the competent authorities in Belgium and the Federal Republic of Germany under EEC regulation 517/72. Deutsche Touring is a partner in an authorised service between London and Munich on which passengers may be picked up and set down at Ostend and Frankfurt. It is not allowed to operate a separate service between these cities.
