To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make it his policy to make public transport in London more affordable to travellers.

Since 1984, real fare increases for London Transport have averaged 2½ per cent. per year, somewhat less than London earnings have risen, which means that public transport in London is that much more affordable. In its response to the MMC report on London Underground, the Government made it clear that they did not see a case for much steeper real fare increases than those in the past six years.
