Harriett Baldwin seeks feedback following Worcestershire’s unsuccessful bid for Bus Back Better funds

Following Worcestershire County Council’s unsuccessful bid for Bus Back Better funds, Harriett Baldwin calls on the Department for Transport to give the council feedback so that it can ‘bid back better’ next time.

Harriett Baldwin (West Worcestershire) (Con)

T8. Like local authorities in so many other parts of the country, Worcestershire County Council was unsuccessful in its bid for Bus Back Better funds. Can the Minister assure me that the Department will give feedback to Worcestershire County Council so that next time it can bid back better? (900133)

Trudy Harrison (The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport)

Absolutely, yes. My hon. Friend is a fantastic champion for local services. We are providing that feedback very shortly to ensure that local authorities, enhanced partnerships and bus operators can all work together and stand the greatest chance of success in future applications. That support will continue.
