HC Deb 23 July 1996 vol 282 c146W
Mrs. Dunwoody

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what checks are being undertaken to ensure the financial standing and viability of the application for an operator licence submitted to the north eastern traffic area office in the name of Willerby 93; and if he plans to grant the licence. [39356]

Mr. Norris

The consideration of applications for operator licences is the responsibility of independent traffic commissioners. I have asked Mr. Keith Waterworth, the traffic commissioner for the north-eastern traffic area, to respond directly.
