THE GOVERNMENT last week rejected a suggestion that special electro-magnetic brake retarders should be compulsory on buses.
A call for suitable legislation was made in the Commons by Sir Timothy Kitson (Tory, Richmond), but Transport Under Secretary John Horam told him that such devices were not always essential to achieve high standards.
There was no substitute for efficient conventional braking systems, said Mr Horam.
