Local Bus Services

Volume 465: debated on Tuesday 23 October 2007

16. To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if she will bring forward proposals for the public to have more involvement in making decisions about local bus services. (159779)

Proposals in the draft Local Transport Bill, published in May 2007, will give local authorities stronger powers to use on behalf of passengers in securing better bus services. We are finalising these proposals in light of responses to the public consultation and the recommendations of the House of Commons Transport Committee.
