asked the Minister of Transport on whose authority the private coach which carried workers from Chorley and Adlington to the de Havilland Works, Lostock, has been stopped, although the Bolton Corporation and the Ribble Motor Services have refused to run an adequate service for the work people.

I am informed that the coach in question was taken out of service by the operator on receipt of an inquiry from the Bolton Corporation Transport Department as to the statutory authority under which it was run. As my hon. Friend knows, the statement made in the latter part of the Question is not confirmed by the licensing authority for public service vehicles.
