The LPTB was set up by the London Passenger Transport Act 1933 enacted on 13 April 1933.[1] The bill had been introduced by Herbert Morrison, who was Transport Minister in the Labour Government until 1931. Because the legislation was a hybrid bill it had been possible to allow it to 'roll over' into the new parliament under the incoming National Government. The new government, although dominated by Conservatives, decided to continue with the bill with no serious changes, despite its extensive transfer of private undertakings into the public sector.[citation needed] On 1 July 1933 the LPTB came into being, covering the "London Passenger Transport Area".
