To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent discussions officials from his Department have had with Peterborough City Council on the (a) establishment and (b) cancellation of bus routes in Peterborough; and if he will make a statement. (144252)

The Department for Transport does not meet with local authorities on a regular basis to discuss the establishment or cancellation of particular commercial bus routes. However, the Government Office for the East of England regularly meets with Peterborough city council to discuss local transport performance and monitoring in relation to the Local Transport Plan, including bus patronage and bus punctuality targets.
