§ Mr. Spearing
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what advice, instructions or indications he has given to, London Regional Transport and its subsidiary undertakings concerning their part in supporting the anti-inflation policy of Her Majesty's Government.
§ Mr. Portillo
London Regional Transport is fully aware of the Government's determination to win the fight against inflation and I have satisfied myself that LRT appreciates the significance of its own pay and price increases. My right hon. Friend has no powers to issue instructions to LRT on these matters.
