FIGURES for the applicant's carryings did not reflect the evidence submitted when the licence was granted In May, 1955, stated Maj. F. S. Eastwood, chairman of the Yorkshire Traffic Commissioners, at Leeds last week, when Mr. James Johnson, Wyke, Bradford, sought to increase from one to two the number of vehicles run on an express service between Bradford and Thrum Hail Greyhound Stadium, Halifax.
Halifax Corporation and kiebble Motor Services, Ltd., objected.
In 1955, the Commissioners had been told that the service was for the benefit of the owners of valuable greyhounds, but figures produced showed that in the 12 months ended November 30, 1956, 3,018 passengers and 209 dogs had been carried, and in three months ended March, 1957, 1,098 passengers and only 25 dogs.
The application was refused.
