asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has noted the Eighth Report of the Select Committee on Nationalised Industries that interest charges on commercial capital debt should be met directly by Government by direct grants to the National Bus Company; and when he expects to take action on the recommendations;(2) whether he has noted the recommendations of the Eighth Report from the Select Committee of Nationalised Industries that those debts of the National Bus Company and London Country Bus Services Limited attributable to additional milage operated during 1975 should be written off; and when he intends to take action on these recommendations.

I am considering the Committee's report and will reply to it as soon as possible.
