HC Deb 26 May 1924 vol 174 cc65-6W

asked the Home Secretary whether he will investigate the circumstances attending the refusal of a motor-driving licence to Mr. E. T. Hale, 17, Reynolds Road, West Ham; whether he is aware that this man has passed the full test in the motor instruction school of the omnibus company, and the company is willing to start him to work as soon as the licence to drive is granted; and whether, therefore, he will expedite such issue?


I have inquired into the facts of this case. The Commissioner does not regard it as one in which he can properly grant a licence, and I am not prepared to overrule his decision.
