ONE of the municipal undertakings that will be affected by the Transport Charges (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill, which was introduced in the House of Commons last week, is Glasgow, which still has a large fleet of trams. Commenting on the Bill, CtIr. R. McAllister, convener of the transport committee, said that the existing procedure had worked well.

He pointed dirt that the corporation members acted as a safeguard against excessive increases. He could see no reason for changing the system.
