§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for Transport (1) if he will list for each bus route awarded by tender by London Regional Transport to other operators in 1986 to date the amount to be paid annually by each to the other, together with a list of those bus routes advertised for tender awarded to London Buses Ltd., listing for each any amount credited to that route by London Regional Transport in respect of social needs;
(2) if he will state for each of the bus routes operated by contractors for London Regional Transport for whole or part of the year 1985–86 the amount paid to London Regional Transport or the amount paid by it to each operator, together with an estimate of the equivalent amounts expected to be paid in the current financial year.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
Detailed information on the amounts paid by or to London Regional Transport for the operation of particular routes by London Buses Ltd. and other operators is a matter for them. Some of the information will be commercially confidential. For 1985–86 LRT's published accounts show that the contribution to group turnover of tendered services operated by London Buses Ltd. was L1.1 million, of tendered services operated by others £2.0 million, and of contract and express carriage business £3.8 million.
§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list the plant, property and vehicles sold, leased, or let to other undertakings by London Regional Transport relating to bus operations arising from the provisions of the London Regional Transport Act.
