Simon Posner, of the Confederation of Passenger Transport Organisations, told the programme that while he welcomed news of the lifting of blockades at some fuel installations, it would not solve the problems overnight.
'Certainly by today we will see the great majority, if not all, bus services in this country changing. You'll start to see skeleton services; you'll start to see weekend services; and you'll see late and early services just not running at all. We still do not know when we are going to get the fuel. Come the weekend 30% of services might not be running'.
Mr Posner said bus operations had not been regarded as a priority. There had been only one fuel delivery yesterday - in the north east.
'We have fed Mr Prescott with a great deal of information on where the fuel is needed. We want to see those priority orders made, and made today'.
