I am not suggesting...

I say that these elaborate schemes are impracticable and are also...

Oral Answers to Questions — Fuel and Power.: Private Motor-Cars (Hackney Carriage Licences) (1 Jun 1943)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I do not know whether the right hon. and gallant Gentleman is referring to the Order just issued with regard to hired cars, and, if so, I would ask him whether he is quite sure that this covers the particular point I have raised, as it seems only to put restrictions upon people who hire cars, whereas I want to catch people who have their own cars licensed for their own pleasure purposes.
