HC Deb 10 November 1942 vol 383 cc2307-8W
Colonel Carver

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether there is any objection or hindrance to attaching trailers to omnibuses where road surface renders this possible?

Mr. Noel-Baker

The attachment of trailers to omnibuses except for the purpose of gas producer traction is prohibited by the Public Service Vehicle (Equipment and Use) Regulations, 1941, and in view of the difficulty of manœuvring such a combination and the conditions under which omnibus services operate, I do not think it would be wise to adopt the course suggested by my hon. and gallant Friend.
