AT a general meeting of the coachowners' section of the Commercial Motor Users Association (Manchester area) and the Manchester Transport (Owners) Association, on Tuesday, it was unanimously decided to prepare a special public-service-vehicle licensing scheme, similar to the goods-vehicle licensing arrangement now operated by the Manchester C.M.U.A.
The new service will deal with all licensing problems for coach owners, including the making up of schedules and their presentation in court. Under the scheme, all finances will be placed into a separate banking account, and a fund of £500 is to be raised in the first year for dealing with coach operators' objections on appeals.
Mr. IIoward Robinson, who has been secretary of the coach owners' section, resigned this week, and the work is being undertaken by Mr. H. H. Lapsley, who has recently been appointed secretary of the C.M.U.A. for the Manchester area. Mr. Robinson continues as secretary to the Manchester Transport (Owners) Association, which is dealing only with matters of wages. In this connection, he will retain the secretaryship of the North-Western Conciliation Board.
