HC Deb 07 March 1988 vol 129 cc106-7W
Mr. Matthew Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent representations he has received concerning rural transport in Cornwall; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Mitchell

No recent representations have been received about rural transport services in Cornwall. Deregulation passed off smoothly there with services broadly maintained at reduced cost to the county. There are minibuses in many towns and the consequent increase in bus mileage overall has been of benefit to the people of Cornwall.
