§ 46. Mr. Wingfield Digbyasked the Minister of Transport how many holders of A and B licences there are at 87W present; what is the total number of vehicles operated by each category; and how many of these vehicles do not operate beyond a radius of 25 miles from their base.

§ Mr. MarplesThe latest figures of vehicles and licences, as at 31st December, 1962, show that 119,000 vehicles were operating under 28,000 A and Contract A licences and 74,000 vehicles were operating under 35,000 B licences. I cannot say how many different licence holders there are, nor how many vehicles do not operate beyond a radius of 25 miles from their base.
