§ 117. Sir J. Lucas
asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that purchasers of ex-W.D. or C.D. Hillman Minx or similar canvas-covered light motor trucks are only allowed to register them with a "C" licence; and, in view of their suitability for use as utility motor cars or as station waggons, if he will allow them to be registered as private motor cars in suitable cases.
§ Mr. Barnes
The facts are not as suggested. Such a vehicle is registered under the Roads Act, 1920, and charged to duty under the Finance Act, 1920, as a "private" or "goods" vehicle according to the use made of it. A "C" licence under the Road and Rail Traffic Act, 1933, is necessary if the vehicle is used for the carriage of goods in connection with the owner's trade or business.
