HC Deb 13 July 1987 vol 119 cc322-3W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he has any plans to review the operation of the Transport Act with particular regard to the operation of new bus routes along roads which have not previously been used for this purpose and where residents have objections.

Mr. David Mitchell

The Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and the Transport Act 1985 both provide remedies in cases where roads are unsuited to bus operation. The expansion of the bus services into new areas has been of great value to many people who do not have access to a car.
