HC Deb 25 June 1951 vol 489 cc102-3W
77. Lieut.-Colonel Bromley-Davenport

asked the Minister of Transport under what authority persons applying for a C carrier's licence are obliged to complete Form Z/F/22a as well as Form GV. 5; and for what purpose this additional detailed information is required.

Mr. Barnes

Applicants for C carrier's licences are asked to give on Form Z/F/22a brief details of such items as the size, unladen weight and carrying capacity of their vehicles: but they are not obliged to do so. Originally devised for fuel rationing purposes, its use is being continued because it provides a simple method of keeping an up-to-date record of the licensed vehicle fleet of the country.
