HC Deb 13 February 1985 vol 73 c173W
Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a further statement on the discussions he has had with London borough councils about the future status and funding of the dial-a-ride service.

Mrs. Chalker

[pursuant to her reply 12 February 1985, c.114]: Officials from my Department have had a useful preliminary meeting with a number of representatives of the London boroughs about the future of special services such as dial-a-ride.
