§ 39. Captain P. MACDONALD
asked the Minister of Transport the approximate amount expended, both on legal charges and other matters, by applicants and objectors before the Traffic Commissioners with regard to licences to provide public 2122 vehicle services since the Traffic Commissioners were set up; and whether he is aware that a substantial burden is placed on small operators in this connection?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
As I have no power to ask parties to disclose to me what they pay to their legal or other advisers, I am not in a position to answer my hon. and gallant Friend's question.
§ Captain MACDONALD
Will the Minister take steps to lessen the charges on small operators in the future?
