HC Deb 04 November 1987 vol 121 c785W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will now return to local authorities the duty to designate coach routes in their areas; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Mitchell

Local authorities retain their powers under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to prevent public service vehicles from using unsuitable roads. The Transport Act 1985 gave them a further power to prohibit or restrict waiting by local buses.
