HC Deb 11 November 1985 vol 86 c81W
Mr. Spencer

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will make a statement on the effects of deregulation in the transport industry on bus services in Leicestershire.

Mr. David Mitchell

Competition will benefit bus passengers in Leicestershire as it will elsewhere. The Transport Act will give bus operators the incentive and the opportunity to attract people back onto buses to the benefit of customer ratepayer and operator.
