§ Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is aware of the views of many local authorities that the passenger transport executives should be under the control of elected representatives when the new local authorities are established; and what steps he will take to satisfy this wish.
§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
We intend to provide for the new Metropolitan County Councils to become the Passenger Transport Authorities. The Passenger Transport Executives will thus come under the direct control of elected representatives.
