HC Deb 01 February 1967 vol 740 cc117-8W
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.
