HC Deb 03 May 1937 vol 323 c790
70. Captain Plugge

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the public inconvenience caused by the North Kent transport strike, he will inquire what temporary local transport arrangements can be made for the sick, the infirm, the aged and the very young children?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

The licensing of any temporary services is—upon application—for the Traffic Commissioners.

Captain Plugge

Will the Minister appoint a court of inquiry into the North Kent transport strike on similar lines to the court of inquiry appointed in the case of the London omnibus strike, in view of the fact that the North Kent omnibus strike has been going on for a much more considerable time?
