BRIVITON Corporation recommends promoting a Bill, either alone or jointb with Hove Corporation and Thomas Tilling, Ltd., or either of them, in order to constitute and incorporate a Joint Transport Board, consisting of representatifes of, or appointed by, Brighton Corporation, Hove Corporation and Thomas Tilling, Ltd., for the purpose of maintaining and working tramcars and buses within the district. This comprises the boroughs of Brighton and Hove, the urban districts of Portslade-by-Sea and Southwick, and part of the urban district of Shoreham-by-Sea. The Bill would also provide for the transfer to the Board, without payment therefor, of the existing tramways undertaking of Brighton Corporation and the Brighton and Hove section of the bus business of the Tilling concern. It would cover the payment to the Board by Hove Corporation of the sum stated in the Bill, and repeal as from the date of such a transfer the provisions of any local Act and Order authorizing Brighton or Hove Corporations to provide and ran tramways, trolley vehicles and buses.
Provision would also be made to em
power the Board to carry on the existing tramway and bus undertakings as transferred, to maintain and work tramways and to provide and run publicservice vehicles within and outside the transport district and to restrict competition with the Board's transport Services.
Brighton Corporation suggests that the Bill should make provision as to the application of the revenues of the Board and the distribution of its profits between Brighton Corporation, Hove Corporation and Thomas Tilling, Ltd., in the proportions mentioned in the Bill.
