HC Deb 07 July 1999 vol 334 c533W
Mr. Jim Cunningham

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans he has to extend(a) the red route network and (b) the bus priority network to other cities. [89474]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The red route project and powers are exclusive to London. Elsewhere, it is primarily for local authorities to use their existing traffic management powers to give appropriate priority to buses. We look to them to do so, in the context of developing their local transport plans and bus strategies.
