§ Mr. Harry Barnes
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what information he holds for England and Wales on restrictions placed on privately hired buses and coaches making use of designated bus lanes and traffic light filters for buses.
§ Mr. Freeman
Traffic orders governing the use of bus lanes and signals on local roads are the responsibility of local highway authorities. At present the measures would normally not include coaches or private hire vehicles unless specifically signed. No central records of such local regulations are kept.
