HC Deb 18 March 1985 vol 75 cc368-9W
15. Mr. Alan Howarth

asked the Secretary of State for Transport how the level of bus services in the rural trial area of Hereford and Worcester has compared with bus services in rural areas elsewhere since the trial was established.

Mr. Ridley

Bus vehicle kilometres on country routes in the trial area are estimated to have risen 2 per cent. since the trial was established. During the same period vehicle kilometres in the whole of the county of Hereford and Worcester declined by 12 per cent. and in rural Cumbria by 9 per cent. (Comprehensive figures for rural services for the country as a whole are not available.)]
