HC Deb 01 August 1946 vol 426 c257W
Mr. Teeling

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the Streamline Association of Hove has now had its 28 small taxicab owners running motorcars for eight years without renewal; that police Regulations for conditions of vehicles is being tightened up; and that, unless some priority is allowed the association for the purchase of new motorcars, all taxicabs will soon have to be withdrawn from use in Hove; and what action he proposes taking.

Mr. Barnes

I have not received any communication from the association, on the subject and in any case I have no control over the allocation of new vehicles or the licensing of cabs to ply for hire.
