HC Deb 09 November 1987 vol 122 c82W
Mr. Fry

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he is satisfied that his Department employs enough traffic commissioners to ensure that local commercial bus services operate in accordance with registration particulars and other statutory requirements.

Mr. David Mitchell

I am satisfied that the traffic commissioners, who are appointed by the Secretary of State, are sufficient in number and have adequate resources to carry out their independent statutory duties.
