HC Deb 24 January 1940 vol 356 c571
40. Mr. Holdsworth

asked the Minister of Transport whether motor licences taken out in March this year can be ante-dated so as to cover the Easter holidays?

Captain Wallace

Yes, Sir. Licences will be available from 21st March this year either for the second quarter or for the rest of the year. As in 1932, when a similar concession was made, there will be a small additional charge to cover the extra days. This will be 1s. for motor cycles, 5s. for cars whose annual rate of tax is less than £3 and 10s. where the tax is £30 or over. Licences taken out for the first quarter will, of course, be available until the 24th March and can be renewed as from that date in the usual way.
