From Ms V. M. Roberts

Sir: Demography is not often mentioned in discussions of car use. But in the coming decades a rapidly increasing number of 80- and 90-year-olds are going to feel - or be persuaded by others to feel - that they can no longer comfortably drive. This at a time of life when it is paramount for good health to maintain outside interests and go out to see family and friends. Has it been considered that they may provide a growing demand for public transport, affordable and easy in availability.

Yours faithfully,

V. M. Roberts
