Mr. Robert G. Hughes
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received about funding levels for London Dial-a-Ride in 1988–89.139W
§ Mr. David Mitchell
I have received a number of letters from Members of Parliament, private individuals and others concerning Dial-a-Ride. I have made it clear that as there is evidence that current resources are not in all cases being used cost-effectively, decisions on future levels of funding must depend on further efficiency improvements by some Dial-a-Ride organisations.
