HC Deb 23 October 1989 vol 158 c372W
Mr. Spearing

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what advice, instructions or indications he has given to, London Regional Transport and its subsidiary undertakings concerning their part in supporting the anti-inflation policy of Her Majesty's Government.

Mr. Portillo

London Regional Transport is fully aware of the Government's determination to win the fight against inflation and I have satisfied myself that LRT appreciates the significance of its own pay and price increases. My right hon. Friend has no powers to issue instructions to LRT on these matters.
