HC Deb 17 March 1987 vol 112 c429W
Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what contracts are in course of negotiation between London Regional Transport and United Transport International; what is his policy towards the participation in contracted-out transport services of firms operating similar services in South Africa; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Mitchell

Contracts involving London Regional Transport arc matters for the parties concerned. The international affiliations of those seeking contracts from LRT is not a material consideration in the award of such contracts.

I understand that United Transport International operates bus companies widely in several countries in Africa, including South Africa and Zimbabwe.
