STATING that there was insufficient supporting evidence, the East Midland Licensing Authority has refused permission to the Midland General Omnibus Co., Ltd., to run more vehicles on their Mansfield and Yarmouth express services. The company sought to increase from four to eight the maximum number of coaches to be operated on any Saturday between the first Saturday in July and the first Saturday in August on the outward journey, and on the second Saturdays in July and August on the return journey.
Mr. K. Laing, traffic manager of the concern, said that they could not accept, any more bookings for July and there were 325 inquiries outstanding. Mr. W. H. Parker, a member of the Mansfield colliery branch of the National Union of Mineworkers, stated that there was need at the colliery for coach facilities, particularly as Yarmouth was a popular resort.
An objection was lodged by Mr. Bernard Wain, Mansfield, for whom Mr. A. C. G. Rothera said that he was amazed at the paucity of the supporting evidence. Mr. Wain had come to the court in May with witnesses to prove the need for an adjustment in the terms of his licence.
