HC Deb 08 August 1940 vol 364 c449W
Mr. Parkinson

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will have inquiries made into the reasons why the Traffic Commissioners, North-Western traffic area, refused to grant licences to Wigan firms to carry passengers to their work, in view of the inadequate services in use with a view to improving them?

Sir J. Reith

Inquiries have recently been made into the travelling facilities for workmen between the district of Wigan and the factory which I understand my hon. Friend has in mind, and I shall be happy to inform him of the result. If he has received other specific complaints, which have not yet been brought to my notice, and will let me have particulars, I will have inquiries made.
