Asked by: Earl of Listowel (Crossbench - Excepted Hereditary)

Question to the Department for Transport:

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the forthcoming national bus strategy will include provision to make buses affordable for families in temporary accommodation.

Answered by Baroness Vere of Norbiton - Parliamentary Secretary (HM Treasury)

Transport can be a lifeline for communities and people who could otherwise be isolated. The forthcoming National Bus Strategy for England will focus on the needs of passengers and will set out how national and local government and the private sector will come together to meet the needs of local communities. The full scope of the strategy is currently being developed.
