asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list in the Official Report the local authorities in the United Kingdom which provide (a) free travel, (b) half-fare travel and (c) less than half-fare travel for retirement pensioners and the disabled.
Concessionary fare schemes are for individual local authorities to decide in the context of the resources they have available and their judgment of the most effective way of meeting the needs of old people in their area. They are not required to notify my Department of details.
