Is the hon. Gentleman aware that he is far too complacent in this matter? I agree that he ought to consult various organisations, but he ought also to consult the local education authorities in many of the new towns. In Cramlington, for example, the road pattern is changing rapidly, and an arbitrary three-mile limit for providing assistance for schoolchildren is entirely wrong. The hon. Gentleman should consider the question of road safety as well as the question of distance.
