808. MINUTES OF MEETING OF SEPTEMBER 22nd, 1960

Agreed.

809. GENERAL MATTERS OF POLICY

1. Position of Schemes still to be submitted

(a) Assessment of Parcels Receipts

Following the departmental meetings held on August 29th and September 15th, consideration was given to the difficulties met in assessing the receipts attributable to Diesel Multiple Unit Schemes in the Manchester Area, particularly those arising where trains from more than one scheme run over the same line.

As the parcels traffic in the area is heavy and the receipts likely to affect materially the net revenues of the schemes, it was agreed that special efforts must be made to obtain reasonable assessments of the receipts attributable to the services in each scheme.  It was appreciated that this would involve, for several schemes, the counting of the numbers of parcels loaded into and unloaded out of trains at a number of stations.  full use should, however, be made of the knowledge and experience of local parcels officials to provide, where possible, broad estimates of the numbers required, with a view to reducing the counting work to a minimum.

Similar arrangements should be made for schemes, other than those in the Manchester Area, to be dealt with in the future and in the meantime preparation of all necessary particulars for the proposals other than parcels receipts should proceed.
