§ 35. Mr. GILBERT
asked whether any arrangement was made last year with the General Omnibus Company, London, to guarantee or pay them any grant or subsidy when they put on London streets a number of motor-lorry omnibuses; if so, can he state what the agreement was and if any money has been paid to the company; and, if so, how much?
§ Mr. NEAL
No arrangement was made with the London General Omnibus Company to guarantee or pay them any grant or subsidy when motor-lorry omnibuses were put on to relieve the congestion of passenger traffic in London. The company have, however, made representations' to the Minister of Transport with regard to certain expenditure to which they have been put and, inasmuch as the matter is at present the subject of discussion, I am not able to make any statement.
