• Decision was reserved on an application by C. Wright and Sons, of Penycae, when the company applied to the North Western Traffic Commissioners in Chester last week for an excursion and tours licence authorizing extended tours to London, Blackpool, Edinburgh, Dundee and surrounding district.
Objections to the application were lodged by Llangollen Tours, D. C. Jones and Sons, T. Williams and Sons, Smith's Tours (Wigan) Ltd, Salopia Saloon Coaches Ltd, Midland Red, Crosville Motor Services Ltd.
Representing Wright and Sons, Mr G. Beames told the Commissioners that the proposed tours were of three, four and five days' duration and would affect none of the objectors as none of them at present operated this type of "mini-holiday".
Mr D. M. Kerby, assistant manager of Midland Red, explained that the objection lodged by his company was against the proposed London tour. He explained that Midland Red operated from Wrexham, one of the proposed picking-up points, an express service to London. But Mr Beames claimed there could be no comparison between an express service and an inclusive four-day excursion.
