asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that, owing to the agreement arrived at by the. London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company and the Scottish Motor Transport Company, the omnibus service on Gainsborough, Grantham and Lincoln at 27th October, 1930, 28th October, 1929, and 3rd June, 1929:the Glamis to Forfar road has been nearly abolished, except on Saturdays and Sundays, thereby causing inconvenience to villagers and others; and will he take steps to prevent amalgamation of transport services except where adequate facilities to the public are maintained?

I was not previously aware of the circumstances to which the hon. Member refers in the first part of his question. As regards the second part, I have no power to prevent the making of agreements such as those to which he refers.
