§ Mr. BROAD
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that at Wembley on Whit Monday night the London General Omnibus Company were obliged to obtain permission from the official in charge of the char-à-banc park to allow the company to park over 120 omnibuses to enable them to convey the people away, and that this occurred at a time when the police regulations prohibited other omnibuses from picking up passengers outside at all; and, in view of the strong public feeling that undue preference is being given to this company, whether he will consider the revision of the regulations?
It is known that the London General Omnibus Company did make arrangements for a number of omnibuses to stand in the chars-a-bane park, and so far as the police are concerned it is open to the proprietor of any omnibus to make similar arrange-612W ments. The regulations which were in force only prevented omnibuses stopping in the Wembley Hill Road South of Raglan Gardens. No preference whatever has been or will be given by the police; and it is not proposed to revise the regulations, which have secured the object for which they were made.
