HC Deb 14 December 1950 vol 482 cc209-10W
131. Mr. Adams

asked the Minister of Transport by what authority a person is prevented from boarding, or attempting to board, an omnibus other than at a recognised stopping place.

Mr. Barnes

There is no act or regulation which in general terms either permits a person to board an omnibus otherwise than at a recognised stopping place or which prohibits him from doing so. Under Regulations as to the conduct of passengers, however, a passenger may not enter an omnibus if the conductor requests him not to do so because it is full, or because the operator is debarred from picking up passengers at that point by conditions imposed by the licensing authority; nor may a passenger enter an omnibus when it is approaching a stopping place in order to avoid joining the queue.
