§ Mr. M. MacMillan
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he will consider adopting the practice of advertising in the local newspapers, as well as, or instead of, in the national papers, applications for permits to operate public service passenger and goods vehicles in the Hebrides, for the better convenience and information of the public.1804W
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
It is not the practice to advertise applications for permits to operate public service passenger or goods vehicles either in the national or in the local Press. The Regional Transport Commissioner proposes, however, to hold a public inquiry at Stornoway in the early spring to deal with current applications for permits, and he will send lists of applications in advance to all the operators concerned and to the local authorities and police.
