817. GENERAL MATTERS OF POLICY

1. Position of Schemes still to be submitted

The Chairman referred to the revised statement of November 24th attached as Appendix 'C', giving the position in regard to outstanding submissions for diesel schemes and it was noted that in some cases the dates for submission to the General Manager had been considerably put back.  The Chairman stated that, whilst it was appreciated that considerable additional information was now required, it was very essential that submissions should be made quickly in order that our requirement of vehicles could be included in the 1962 Building Programme and asked for special attention to be given to the matter, particularly in respect of the Manchester schemes.  The position still remained that the Commission would not accept block orders for vehicles for inclusion in the building programmes but required separate submissions for requirements for individual schemes.

In regard to parcels receipts, Mr.Roberts stated that a system of counting had now been evolved and would be applied in January to the Manchester Part 4 scheme and if successful would be applied to other schemes.  The Chairman said that if a scheme appeared financially sound from passenger receipts only, it could, in order to avoid delay, be submitted without waiting for parcels receipts.
