asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he intends to issue any guidance to passenger transport joint boards in metropolitan county areas, in the event of the abolition of the metropolitan county councils, concerning the interpretation of public passenger transport policies and highway, traffic and land use policies of metropolitan districts in their areas.
