§ 101. Brigadier Thorp
asked the Minister of Transport why Form Stats. (Revised 1950) has to be filled up so frequently; and if he will consider requiring this form to be returned less often.
§ Mr. Barnes
Form Stats. 15 (Revised 1950), to which I assume the hon. Member refers, is required in order to provide quarterly particulars of numbers of public service vehicles, nature of services, passengers carried, miles run and receipts. This information, which shows considerable seasonal variations, is necessary for a current appreciation of transport resources and performance.
