§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what action he is taking to ensure pensioners using London Transport continue to have a free travel pass when London's public transport is deregulated.
§ Mr. Norris
When we bring forward legislation to deregulate London bus services we shall include provisions to ensure the continuation of a London-wide concessionary fares scheme after deregulation. The level of concessions offered will, as now, be for the London boroughs to determine.
