§ 9 and 10. Lord SCONE
asked the Minister of Transport (1) the total income from fees, etc., paid by operators in each of the years 1931–32 and 1932–33 in the Scotland (Northern), Scotland (Southern), and Newcastle traffic areas, and for the whole of Great Britain, respectively;
(2) the total expenditure incurred, in each of the years 1931–32 and 1932–33, by the Traffic Commissioners in the Newcastle area, the Scotland (Northern) and Scotland (Southern) areas, and the whole of Great Britain, respectively?
§ The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Oliver Stanley)
As the answers to the Noble Lord's two questions contain a number of figures, I will, with his permission, circulate the information in the OFFICIAL REPOET.
§ Following are the answers:
§ The total income from fees, etc., under the Road Traffic Act, 1930, paid by operators in the financial years 1931–32 and 1932–33 in the Scotland (Northern), Scotland (Southern) and the Northern (Newcastle) Traffic Areas and in the whole of Great Britain was:
|Scotland (Northern) Area||9,151||8,342|
|Scotland (Southern) Area||21,300||21,628|
|Northern Area (Newcastle)||17,980||17,305|
|Total for Great Britain||215,210||223,447|
§ It is not possible to identify the whole of the expenditure in respect of the Traffic Commissioners' organisations in the three areas as certain items of expenditure e.g. postage, printing and stationery and superannuation charges are not allocated between the areas, nor is anything included in these figures for expenses incurred in the Ministry of Transport itself in connection with the administration of Part IV of the Act of 1930.
|Scotland (Northern) Area||11,169||9,675|
|Scotland (Southern) Area||12,550||12,187|
|Northern Area (Newcastle)||15,301||13,707|
|Total for Great Britain||199,190||198,847|
