HC Deb 04 July 1935 vol 303 c2000

asked the Minister of Transport whether he can make any statement with regard to the proposal to amend the motor car registration methods at Hove to enable the owners and residents of Hove to register their cars at Brighton instead of at Lewes, which involves a journey of 20 miles and considerable and irrecoverable expense and loss of time to motor car agents and other traders?


If a vehicle is sold by a dealer in Hove which is in the East Sussex County Council area, it can be driven, if so desired, under trade plates to Brighton and registered and licensed there. Applications for renewals would of course be directed to the East Sussex County Council. There is no need for a personal application.
