To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to give new powers to local authorities to regulate buses in Wales. (100690)

The Government intend to publish a draft Bill in the current Session which will include provisions to improve local bus services. Regarding matters that are devolved in Wales, it will be for the National Assembly to decide which provisions should apply to Wales and which should not. Officials will be working closely with the Welsh Assembly Government as detailed proposals are developed.
