HC Deb 02 November 1998 vol 318 c307W
Mr. Levitt

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will extend the bus fuel rebate scheme to vehicles involved in non-profit making community transport schemes. [57191]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The long-standing purpose of the bus fuel duty rebate scheme is to assist services which (among other criteria) are available for the general public and are registered with the Traffic Commissioner as local bus services. We have no present plans to extend the scheme's scope.
