CORBYN REVEALS PLAN TO RE-NATIONALISE BUS SERVICES

Only metro mayors have the power to re-regulate buses under the Bus Services Act 2017.

Jeremy Corbyn plans to give all local authorities the right to take bus services into public ownership if Labour wins the General Election.

The Labour leader told bosses on Monday of his latest pledge to wrest back some control from businesses, following his plan to create a nationalised broadband service.

Telling the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) it is "nonsense" to call him anti-business, Mr Corbyn made the pitch that Labour is the party to deliver the investment and Brexit deal that bosses desire.

He told the organisation's annual conference in London that he plans to give councils the power to undo some of Margaret Thatcher's privatisation of the bus network in the 1980s.
