§ 70. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the London Midland and Scottish Railway Company and the Western Scottish Motor Transport Company, Limited, have taken no action following the report, dated 16th September, 1936, by the commissioner on the appeal by the Kilmarnock Town Council against the refusal of the traffic commissioners for the Southern Scotland area to fix a reduced maximum rate for season tickets between Kilmarnock and Glasgow in respect of road service licences granted to the Western Scottish Motor Transport Company; and whether he is prepared to take action to secure a reduction in the present excessive fare and so rectify the hardship suffered by regular travellers by 2076 omnibus between Kilmarnock and Glasgow since 1930 when the season ticket rate was increased from £13 15S. to £20 12s. per annum?
§ Mr. Burgin
A decision on this appeal having been given by my predecessor, I have no power to re-open the matter.
