HC Deb 27 November 1950 vol 481 cc768-9
26. Mr. Shepherd

asked the Minister of Transport the number of C licences issued in the last three years, where the vehicle concerned has been a private motor car with adaptations, or of the shooting-brake variety.

Mr. Barnes

I regret that the information asked for is not available.

Mr. Shepherd

Has not the right hon. Gentleman some idea of the extent to which these licences were granted, to allay the fears of his hon. Friends behind him who confuse this sort of C licence with the proper thing?

Mr. Barnes

I am anxious always to avoid unnecessary expense, and this would represent, in my view, a good deal of unnecessary labour.
