I understand the difficulty of merely returning to the old system, but does the hon. Gentleman agree that because of the fuel crisis and fears about urban pollution, major cities such as Amsterdam, Zurich and Melbourne may have something to teach us about the way in which we disposed of our trams and trolley buses so quickly. Does he also agree that the advent of bus lanes in so many British cities is a tacit acknowledgement that reserving traffic accommodation for public service vehicles is something that should be given further study by the Government?
