UIN 49610, tabled on 8 September 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether the bus fare cap introduced by the Government will have an effect on the Barnett consequentials for Scotland.

Answered on

23 September 2022

The £2 fare cap announced by the Government on 3 September will apply to single bus tickets on most services in England outside London.

This proposal is being funded from existing Department for Transport budgets and therefore will have no impact on the Barnett consequentials for Scotland.
