– in the House of Commons on 9th October 1924.
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many motor-car licences have been taken out. since 1st August; and how the number compares with that of last year?
I have been asked to answer this question. I am unable to give the hon. Member the information for which he asks, as the Returns for September have not yet been received from local authorities. I shall, however, be issuing very shortly a Return showing the licences issued during the three months ended 31st August, and will arrange for a copy of the Return to be sent to the hon. Member.
Will the right hon. Gentleman say how many of these, under the new circumstances, are foreign cars?
