§ Major Procter
asked the Minister of Transport what approximate proportion of the £31,000,000 derived during 1935–36 from licence duties on mechanically-propelled road vehicles was obtained, respectively, from the users of private and commercial road vehicles?
Lieut.-Colonel Sandeman Allen
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that an unemployed vehicle driver seeking employment as the driver of a heavy goods vehicle is at a great disadvantage through being required to provide a vehicle on which to pass the test for a licence to drive a heavy goods vehicle; and whether a regulation will be made to overcome the difficulty by permitting a provisional licence to drive a heavy goods vehicle to be issued to an experienced driver who holds a licence entitling him to drive a light goods vehicle?
§ Mr. Hore-Belisha
I am glad to be able to tell my hon. and gallant Friend that since the first of last month the facility which I understand him to desire has existed.
