HC Deb 14 February 1924 vol 169 cc1046-7W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether, pending the Report of the Committee now sitting on the revision of the methods of taxation of motor vehicles, he will consider the desirability of issuing monthly, in lieu of quarterly, licences to owners of motor Vehicles used for commercial purposes and of reducing the sums chargeable for such quarterly or monthly licences to one-fourth and one-twelfth, respectively, of the rate for the licence for a complete year?


Any changes such as those suggested by the hon. and gallant Member would require legislative sanction, and effect could not he given to them merely by administrative action. I am advised that there are serious objection to the issue of monthly licences for any month in the year, but I understand that the Departmental Committee have under consideration proposals designed to attain some, at least, of the objects desired by the hon. Member.
