§ Sir F. MEYER
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is prepared to amend the Road Vehicles (Part Year Licensing) Order, 1924, dated 1st November, 1924 (Statutory Rules and Orders, 1924, No. 1245), so as to authorise the grant of shorter period licences at pro rata rates to owners of chars-a-banc, etc., in order that vehicles now laid up during slack seasons may be brought into occasional use?
§ Lieut.-Colonel MOORE-BRABAZON
The Road Vehicles (Part Year Licensing) Order, 1924, taken in conjunction with Section 18 (1) of the Finance Act, 1924, enables the owner of a motor vehicle to obtain what is in effect a monthly licence for any month of the year. My right hon. Friend is not disposed to recommend the issue of licences for any shorter period.
