To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will assist local authorities to extend the provision of concessionary travel to pensioners; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
Local councils in Wales already provide concessionary fares schemes for pensioners. Money from the taxpayer for such schemes is provided through the local government revenue settlement. It is for individual councils to decide on the financial support that they wish to allocate for this purpose.
