The president of the national Consumers Association has expressed delight at the outcome of a meeting held with transport officials and the executive of the National Council on Public Transportation on Tuesday this week.

The meeting appears to have ended with a decision that will result in the shelving of plans for a bus fare increase, at least for the time being.

Despite a decline in the price of fuel at the local pump the NCOPT had insisted that an increase in the cost of fares was overdue.

Mr Kingsley St Hill says he pleased that consumers will not have to bear the burden of another increase.

Meanwhile the NCA President says he will continue to press for the enactment of the Consumer Protection Bill here.

He adds that he has been informed by the Minister for Commerce of an assurance that has been given by the Minister for legal affairs regarding movement on the legislation.
