HC Deb 24 April 1963 vol 676 c28W
42. Mr. Spriggs

asked the Minister of Transport it he will give separate figures of A, B and C road haulage licences issued in each year since 1951; how many applications were refused, and for what reasons applications failed.

Mr. Hay

The following are the figures. It is not practicable to show in detail the reasons why some applications failed. The great majority of failures are caused by lack of evidence that sufficient volume of work exists for the vehicles concerned.
