§ 50. Mr. Tim Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects the autoguide system to be in operation in central London.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
We hope that a pilot autoguide scheme will be operating in London by 1990, provided that Parliament grants the necessary powers and private industry makes a satisfactory proposal. The pilot scheme is intended to provide the basis for a fully commercial autoguide service, to which the public can subscribe in the early 1990s.
