Local Transport Bill [HL]

Volume 696: debated on Wednesday 7 November 2007

My Lords, I beg leave to introduce a Bill to make further provision in relation to local transport authorities, the provision and regulation of road transport services and the subsidising of passenger transport services; to amend Sections 74, 75 and 79 of the Transport Act 1985; to make provision for, or in relation to, committees that represent the interests of public transport; to rename the passenger transport authorities as “integrated transport authorities” and to make further provision in relation to them; to make further provision in relation to charging for the use of roads; and to make provision in relation to the acquisition, disclosure and use of information relating to vehicles registered outside the United Kingdom; and for connected purposes. I beg to move that this Bill be now read a first time.

Moved accordingly, and, on Question, Bill read a first time, and ordered to be printed.
