We encourage local authorities such as Transport for Greater Manchester and bus operators to work in partnership. Local authorities also have powers to pursue statutory Quality Contracts and Quality Partnerships if appropriate. I intend to wait for the outcome of the Competition Commission inquiry into the local bus market outside London before deciding on the need for any changes to the regulatory regime.
