I refused to confirm the amending by-law referred to on the ground that the declared object of the town council was to authorise a greater number of passengers to be carried on omnibuses than is allowed by the Railway Passenger Duty Act, 1842, and I am not prepared to reconsider my decision. I have no information as to whether the omnibuses owned by the town council of Dundee are run at a loss because of the restrictions imposed by the Act.
