§ Mr. Woods
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that owing to the increase in the rural population arising from evacuation, the number of service men travelling at present and the reduction in the number of omnibuses, the existing rural omnibus service is inade- 1212W quate; and what steps he is taking to improve these services in the rural areas?
§ Captain Wallace
The rationing of fuel has necessitated certain restrictions in omnibus services, but I am not aware that services in rural areas generally are inadequate for the needs of the population. If the hon. Member has any particular case in mind and will send me details, I will certainly look into it.
