§ Mr. GILBERT
asked the Home Secretary whether he can state for how long a period it is proposed to continue the permission granted by the Metropolitan Police to tramway and motor - omnibus undertakings to carry over the number of licensed passengers on tramcars and omnibuses plying in the Metropolitan area?
§ Mr. SHORTT
It is not possible at present to say for how long a period this permission will be continued. It must necessarily depend on the number of vehicles available. Up to the present the output of new vehicles has been small, but a new type of omnibus has been approved, and it is anticipated that a start will be made to turn out a number of new vehicles in the near future.
asked the Prime Minister whether he can yet say what action it is proposed to take with regard to the recommendations of the Select Committee on Metropolitan Transport?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
I have nothing to add to the answer which I gave yesterday to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for South Islington.
