HC Deb 13 February 1933 vol 274 cc652-3W

asked the Minister of Transport under what provisions he intends to withdraw, in accordance with his recently published statement, the licences of the Upminster motor coach services; and whether, before taking any such action, he will consult with the representatives of the residents in the districts concerned who will be inconvenienced by the withdrawal of the services in question?


As I have explained in reply to a letter from the hon. Member, my action in this matter was taken as a result of a number of appeals, including appeals against the grant of the licence concerned, made to me under Section 81 of the Road Traffic Act. My Orders on the commissioners specifically provide that the licence and backing shall not be revoked until they are satisfied that adequate provision has been made for road services between Upminster and London.
