§ Mr. Galbraith
asked the Minister of Transport how many current licences for lorries were renewed by the licensing authorities over each of the last five years; how many of these vehicles had been subject to an immediate prohibition; and how many vehicles which had been subject to an immediate prohibition order have not had their current licence renewed.
§ Mr. Swingler
The number of carriers licences renewed in each of the last five years is as follows:
Year ended 30th September 1962 73,847 1963 71,089 1964 73,323 1965 69,671 1966 63,918
The numbers of vehicles authorised in these renewal licences are not available, nor are the records of immediate prohibition notices kept in such a way as to show when the licences involved are due for renewal.
