HC Deb 24 November 1925 vol 188 cc1190-1W

asked the Minister of Transport the present attitude of the police authorities towards the roofing in of motor omnibus upper decks; and whether any provisional licences have been granted to vehicles so fitted?

Lieut.-Colonel ASHLEY

Rigid top deck covers for certain types of omnibuses are now being tried experimentally in the London area. Four such omnibuses have recently been licensed by the Commissioner of Police, after consultation with my Department, and put into operation. The operators are apparently satisfied with them as they have recently made application for 50 more to be licensed and this application is now under consideration.
