Good to see so many of you at the Spring Meeting/AGM in Nottingham (15 March). It was one of the busiest and liveliest workshops we have had for a while, which shows the level of interest in the topics discussed.
Still, the world retains its capacity to surprise: witness the sudden announcement of a UK General Election. This could affect the adoption of the Bus Services Bill (currently in its final Parliamentary stages) - but our friends at DfT tell us that they are working to get Royal Assent before Parliament dissolves.
We hope that this works out. It would be a shame if all the hard work, and positive collaboration with the industry, got tripped up at the last minute.
