62. Mr. Ross
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland which regional bus groups he has met to discuss the privatisation proposals for the Scottish Transport Group contained in the Transport (Scotland) Bill.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
My right hon. and learned Friend has not met representatives of any bus companies for this purpose. I recently visited the Falkirk depot of Midland Scottish Omnibuses Ltd to hear the views of the management and employees of the typical company on the privatisation of the Scottish Bus Group.
