§ Mr. Martyn Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what estimate he has made of the number of rural residents who live more than half a mile from a bus route; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
Reliable information is not available separately for Wales. However, information from the national travel survey indicates that about 12 per cent. of rural residents in Great Britain live further than 13 minutes walking time from a bus stop, which equates to about half a mile in distance.
