Buses: London

Volume 485: debated on Monday 15 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what discussions he has had with the Mayor of London on the cost of (a) replacing bendy buses in London and (b) the reintroduction of Routemaster buses; and if he will make a statement. (243534)

None. The composition, contractual arrangements and costs of the London bus fleet are a matter for the Mayor of London and Transport for London. Government have agreed a generous, long term funding settlement with Transport for London. It is now for them to manage their bus contracts within that funding envelope.
