HC Deb 31 May 1921 vol 142 cc856-7W

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in the case of the purchaser of a new motor car who, after a trial of a few months and on finding it defective, returns it to be exchanged by maker for another car of exactly similar design within the same year, the purchaser is liable for taking out two licences although he is not at any time in possession of more than one car?


The licence is now granted in respect of the vehicle, and is transferable with the same. The usual and convenient practice is for the owner to receive a proportionate part on parting with the car. Where a licensing authority has consulted my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport on any special case where a new car defective on delivery is replaced by another without charge, no objection has been raised to the issue of a new licence in place of that surrendered.
