HC Deb 24 November 1978 vol 958 c783W
Mr. Jessel

asked the Secretary of State for Transport why a Hillman Hunter de luxe estate car, 1500 cc., registration number MGH911P, chassis number R5ABF5L 132856, purchased by Mr. G. S. Hood of 46 Cole Park Road, Twickenham, Middlesex, on 30th November 1977 has not yet been registered; why between 30th November 1977 and 13th February 1978 his Department at Swansea incorrectly sent Mr. Hood registration documents for a Ford Escort 1100 estate car and a red Hillman Hunter two-door saloon; why he has not replied, other than by postcard acknowledgments to Mr. Hood's three recorded delivery letters of 13th February, 3rd July and 28th October; and whether, in view of the fact that Mr. Hood now wishes to sell the car, he will ensure that Mr. Hood receives the correct registration document within seven days.

Mr. Horam

I offer apologies to the hon. Member and his constituent for the errors and delays which have arisen in this case. I shall send a full reply as soon as possible to the hon. Member's letter to me of 17th November. Meanwhile, a correct vehicle document has been sent to Mr. Hood.
