HC Deb 18 June 1917 vol 94 c1442W
Mr. H. LAW

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland what arrangements, if any, have been made for the continued use of motor vehicles plying for hire in country districts unprovided with taxicabs and ill-provided with railroads, in order to meet the needs of commercial travellers and others who have to travel on business from place to place?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. Arrangements have been made by the Petrol Control Committee for the issue of permits allowing hired motor-cars to be used subject to certain conditions. I am sending the hon. Gentleman a copy of a notice which shows the arrangements in force in Ireland.
