asked the Minister of transport whether he is aware that the traffic commissioner of the Eastern area is interpreting Section 25 (2) of the Road Traffic Act, 1934, in such a way as to prevent weekly excursions being operated between Peterborough and outlying villages; and whether he will take steps to ensure that people living in such villages are not deprived in that way of a necessary amenity.
