57. Mr. Blunkett

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has made for monitoring and acting upon the effects of the change in funding of passenger transport authorities, in the light of the proposed community charge.

We shall be watching with interest metropolitan district expenditure billed from the PTAs and indicators of output made available annually by the PTES. The responsibility for deciding the levels of service will remain as now with the district representatives making up the PTAs.
