HC Deb 30 June 1954 vol 529 cc91-2W
43. Mr. Oliver

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation the grounds on which he made an order requiring the licensing authority to revoke a licence granted to Barton Transport Company to run an omnibus service from Kirk Hallam to Nottingham, having regard to the facts that residents of Kirk Hallam, persons residing on the route and Stanton Ironworks have all protested at the discontinuance of this service, there being none to replace it; and if he will reconsider his decision or hear representations from affected parties.

Mr. Molson

After careful study of all the evidence my right hon. Friend decided that while there might be some need to improve transport between Kirk Hallam and Nottingham, the licence granted was not the right way of doing so. Having heard and determined an appeal the jurisdiction of my right hon. Friend is finished and he cannot reopen the matter.
