TWO appeals by Sunderland Corpora tion against decisions of the Northern Traffic Commissioners have been dismissed by the Minister of Transport. The first one concerned the Commissioners' refusal to grant the Corporation consent to operate p.s.v. on certain roads at Sunderland and South Hylton: the Minister said he applied the criterion set out in Section J02(4) of the Road Traffic Act. 1930, in that the Commissioners should have regard to the extent to which the requirements of the applicants' district would he served, either directly or• indirectly, by a service of vehicles on the route to which the application related.
The second appeal was against the grant to W. H. Jolly, authorizing stage carriage services between South Hylton and Sunderland, and Hylton and Pallion. The Minister concluded that the proposed service was suitable to meet the needs of passengers who would no longer be carried by rail between these points and who would represent new traffic for the bus operators.
