Deregulation Of London Bus Services

EDM number 1170 in 1990-91, proposed by Eddie Loyden on 22/07/1991.

That this House deeply regrets that the Government's ideological obsession with deregulation and privatisation has resulted in a deterioration of bus services outside London; is concerned that bus deregulation has generally led to a decrease in passenger mileage, cuts in off peak and weekend services, a sharp increase in fares and a downward pressure on pay and conditions for bus company employees; deplores the complacent attitude of the Government who now, despite overwhelming opposition, propose to inflict similar damage on London's bus services; fears for the future of travelcard and concessionary fares in London; and consequently calls upon the Government to abandon its plans to privatise and deregulate London's buses and to establish an independent public inquiry into the future structure of London's transport.

This motion has been signed by a total of 48 MPs.
