WHEN Thomas Tours, Ltd., Newark, applied to the East Midland Licensing Authority at Nottingham, last week, for a number of excursion licences, the chairman, Mr. N. G. Curtis, submitted that they had been running unauthorized excursions during the summer.
A director of the company, Mr. J. Thomas, denied that they had run an excursion from Newark to Great Yarmouth on July 16. When Mr. Curtis asked him to explain a ticket marked "Fare paid 25s.," which purported to have been issued by the company for a bus leaving Newark for that destination on that dare, Mr. Thomas said they had lost some tickets. He did not reply when the chairman said: "I put it to you that you have been operating this summer without a licence." The application was granted.
