HC Deb 17 March 1986 vol 94 cc26-7W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will introduce legislation to control the routes taken by coaches operating for hire and reward; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Mitchell

Local authorities already have powers under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to restrict the routes taken through their areas by vehicles of any type, including coaches and other passenger-carrying vehicles. As with all aspects of traffic regulation, we shall keep an eye on the matter.
