§ 69. Mr. Michael Roberts
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what proportion of local authorities is making use of the Government support which is available to them for the purpose of financing rural bus services.
§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
Precise figures cannot be given, since local authorities are not required to notify me in advance of arranging rural bus grants. But over 50 authorities are already giving grants and many more are considering doing so.
