§ 21. Mr. Tony Banks
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will provide the necessary funds to maintain the London-wide taxicard scheme following abolition of the Greater London council.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
No. The GLC's taxicard scheme is arranged under the concessionary travel powers provided in the London Regional Transport Act 1984. Travel concessions are the responsibility of the local authorities and I understand the London boroughs are giving the matter careful consideration.
