Mr. J. Backhouse, for the applicants, said that the U.K.A.E.A. already had a contract for Blundells to operate a works service between Southport and Risley for their staff, This had been in existence since 1956 and the number of passengers carried had increased from 720 to 1,900.

Mr. Wilfred Blundell, managing director, stated that the proposed service was to start from Edge Lane, Formby, with picking-up and setting-down points at Thornton, Aintree, Rainhill and Burtonwood, operating Monday to Friday. Mr. Howard Jones, objecting on behalf of Crosville Motor Services, Ltd., pointed out that the proposed service would be right in the centre of their territory. The application was also opposed by Lancashire United Transport, Ltd.
