My Noble Friend arranged some time ago for an expert of the London Passenger Transport Board to assist the Regional Transport Commissioner in securing improvements of the services in this area. As a result, temporary assistance has been arranged, pending the provision of labour to repair and maintain the existing local fleets and the transfer of vehicles from elsewhere. Although difficulties still remain to be overcome, I am not yet satisfied that in present circumstances, the area would benefit if the operation of the bus services were taken out of the hands of the existing operators.
