asked the Minister of Transport why the Traffic Commissioner for the North-west Area refused an appli- cation from the Batty-Holt Touring Service, Limited, Blackpool, to operate a five days' tour to Scarborough.

According to my information, this application was withdrawn on 30th April before it could be heard at a public sitting.

Does not the right hon. Gentleman think it rather hard that these people who live in Blackpool should not have the same chance of getting to Scarborough as people from other areas?

I do not think that question arises. I am dealing with a specific allegation which, as far as I can see, has no substance.

If I send the right hon. Gentleman full particulars will he have an inquiry made?

I will certainly look into any information which the hon. Gentleman cares to submit to me.
