THERE WERE certain attractions in the Bill introduced by the Tory Government to help rural buses, admitted Mr Neil Carmichael, Under Secretary DoE, in the Commons last week. But when he had looked at it closely he discovered many problems.
Mr Carmichael was being pressed, yet again, to do something to help rural transport where, according to Mr Peter Fry (Tory, Wellingborough) who raised the topic, problems were being aggravated daily.
The Government was aware of the problems, and was working as hard as it could on it, said Mr Carmichael. However, it must not be thought that the matter could be solved by the waving of a wand.
