HC Deb 22 June 1932 vol 267 cc1090-1
33. Lord SCONE

asked the Minister of Transport if he will state, giving separate figures for each quarter, how many applications have been made to the traffic commissioners for Scotland (Northern Area) since their appointment for permission to run a motor vehicle service?


As the answer contains figures I will, with my Noble Friend's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the reply:

Figures are not available for exact quarterly periods. Up to 30th June, 1931, 1,504 applications for road service licences or backings were made to the Traffic Commissioners for the Northern Area, Scotland. During the next six months— i.e., up to 19th December, 547 applications were made for road service licences and 266 for backings. From 20th December, 1931, to 31st March, 1932, 652 applications were made. Of these applitions 600 are in respect of the year 1932–33, i.e., for licences and backings which would become operative between 1st March, 1932, and 28th February, 1933.
