Travel Concessions (Eligibility) Bill [Lords]

[back to previous text]

Mr. Spellar: We are very much in favour of pursuing that idea, either through our mechanism or through the local authority associations' information network, which also has websites. I do not think that the mechanism is a point of issue between us. The hon. Gentleman wants to encourage best practice and make specific information available, and I fully support him in that. I am sure that we can discuss with the local authority associations the best way to facilitate that. I hope that I have been helpful.

Mr. Clifton-Brown: That is extremely helpful. The Minister has given an undertaking that, in addition to funding, his discussions with the local government associations over the implementation of the Bill will include the implementation of best practice. That is helpful and, on that basis I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

        Further consideration adjourned.—[Mr. Woolas.]

        Adjourned accordingly at ten minutes to One o'clock till this day at Five o'clock.
