HC Deb 14 March 1895 vol 31 cc1039-40
CAPTAIN NORTON (Newington, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, seeing that great inconvenience, and frequently the loss of a day's wage, is entailed upon the drivers and conductors of omnibuses and tramcars throughout the Metropolis owing to their ignorance of the fact that it is not necessary for them to attend at New Scotland Yard in order to obtain a renewed licence, but that this can be obtained at the police station nearest to the address of the licensee, he will take steps to have this information brought to their notice by means of circular or otherwise, in accordance with the promise he made last session in reply to a question similar to this?


Arrangements are now nearly completed by which the Commissioner of Police will be able to bring the information to the notice of the drivers and conductors, that they can apply for a renewal of their licence at the nearest police station.
