W/HEN Hudson's Motors, New Mills, VY applied to the North Western Licensing Authority at Manchester, last Friday, for the renewal of a licence for a works service, the North Western Road Car Co., Ltd., claimed that, over a year, it had reduced their revenue by 156.
Mr. H. 13ackhouse, for the applicants, said the service between New Mills and Chinley was granted in February, 1955, for a trial period of 12 months. The Licensing Authority then considered the question of abstraction against convenience to the workpeople and decided in favour of convenience.
The North Western company lodged an appeal, but later withdrew it. The service had been regularly operated with an average of 26-27 passengers per journey, and there had been no complaints.
Granting the renewal, the chairman, Mr. F. Williamson, said the Authority had noted North Western's representations on loss of revenue and they might, well he able to use these facts in evidence in future cases.
ONE BUS AUTHORITY FOR PERTH APROPOSAL to set up an authority to operate all road passenger transport in Perth, Western Australia, has been approved in principle by the State Government. The city is at present served by the Western Australian Government Tramivays undertaking and various private operators, including Metro Buses Pty., Ltd.
It is thought that the private operators' assets will be taken over in return for interest-bearing debentures. A separate statutory body will be set up to determine fares.
The plan is said to be supported by the Omnibus Proprietors' -Association. The local operators face severe financial difficulties.
