HC Deb 16 May 1988 vol 133 cc358-9W
36. Mrs. Ray Michie

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what consideration his Department has given to the special needs of women using public transport.

Mr. David Mitchell

In their formulation of policy towards public transport the Government have well in mind the importance of bus and rail services to women, who have, in general, less access to private cars and greater fears for their personal safety.
