§ Mr. Walter Johnson
asked the Minister of Transport what action he proposes to take to ensure an adequate supply of fuel oils to public transport operators to enable them to serve the needs of the travelling public without any cut-back in existing scheduled services.
§ Mr. Fowler
The Government consider that public transport operators should have a fair share of oil supplies but, as my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Energy said on 11 June, the Government look to all users to reduce their consumption to match the reduction in oil supplies wherever possible.
