HC Deb 03 May 1926 vol 195 c21

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the number of licences current at the latest available date for commercial goods vehicles and motor hackney carriages, respectively, classified in each case according to horse power?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel Ashley)

I have been asked to reply to this question. Commercial goods vehicles and hackney carriages are not taxed according to horse power, and the information for which the hon. Member asks is not available. I am, however, sending him a copy of the latest return, which shows the total number of licences current at the 28th of February last.
