HC Deb 11 July 1923 vol 166 cc1368-9W

asked the Home Secretary if he will inquire into the case of Joseph Anderson Gore, of 15, Lambert Avenue, Mortlake, an ex-soldier, who passed the test and examination to be an omnibus conductor but has been waiting for his licence from Scotland Yard for seven weeks and, after repeated applications, is told that his Army records have not been received at Scotland Yard; and will he take steps to accelerate the issue of a licence to this man, who in the meantime is forced to take unemployment pay?


A licence was issued to Gore on 29th June. Gore was in receipt of unemployment pay for a considerable period before he applied for a licence.
