COUNCILS PROTEST ON RURAL SERVICES INADEQUATE rural bus services I were a contributory cause of the depopulation of the Welsh countryside. said North Wales parish councillors at a meeting called by the Denbighshire Association of Parish Councils, at Colwyn Bay, last week.'
Complaints were received from representatives of each county association, and a resolution was adopted "deploring the inadequate bus services in the rural areas" and calling upon the Ministry of Transport to take the necessary measures to improve them.
Rev. W. Roger Hughes, chairman, said that one of the solutions was for more small operators to run local services, but when such applications were made to the Traffic Commissioners many were rejected. "I! appeal to all parish councils, when they hear of such applications being made, to give them their wholehearted support," he said.
