§ 24. Mr. HARRIS
asked the Minister of Transport how many omnibus licences are held in the Metropolitan Police Area by the London General Omnibus Company, how many by omnibus companies in which the London General Omnibus Company has a financial interest, and how many by other omnibus proprietors, at the latest available date?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir Vivian Henderson)
I have been asked to reply to this question. The best figures I can give are as follow:
|On 30th November last:|
|London General Omnibus Company||3,996|
|Companies in which the London General Omnibus Company has a financial interest||800|
§ Mr. HARRIS
Does not that indicate that under the cover of the London Traffic Act the London General Omnibus Company are getting an almost complete monopoly of the streets of London?
