HC Deb 16 November 1931 vol 259 c509W

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make inquiries into the compulsory discontinuance of the omnibus service at Ridsdale and Woodburn, Northumberland, with a view to alleviating any hardship to the public?


The licensing of road passenger services is a matter for the Traffic Commissioners set up under the Road Traffic Act, 1930, and I have no jurisdiction in regard to any particular case, except on appeal being made to me, under the provisions of the Act. The particulars given in the question are insufficient for me to verify whether or not an appeal has been lodged in the case to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers.
