HC Deb 12 January 1987 vol 108 c17W
35. Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what assessment he has made of the effect on traffic and pollution in London of coach deregulation; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Mitchell

The overall effect of deregulated coach services on traffic and pollution in London has been negligible. Boroughs have powers to make traffic orders to deal with local problems.
