This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

35Grant of road service licences for certain excursions or tours

(1)If, in the case of any application for a road service licence, the traffic commissioners are satisfied that the service which the applicant proposes to provide under the licence (" the proposed service ") would be an excursion or tour and are also satisfied either—

(a)that the proposed service would not compete directly with—

(i)any other service for which a road service licence has been granted, not being an excursion or tour, or

(ii)any London bus service within the meaning of section 23 of the Transport (London) Act 1969; or

(iii)any service being provided by means of one or more tramcars; or

(b)that the proposed service would operate only to enable passengers to attend special events,

the commissioners shall grant the applicant a road service licence in accordance with the application and, in relation to the application and to the licence granted on it, sections 31(2) to (4), 32 and 33 of this Act shall not apply.

(2)Section 30(4) of this Act does not prevent a road service licence granted in pursuance of this section from having effect for the purposes of the provision of a service by means of a vehicle whose operator holds a PSV operator's licence granted by the traffic commissioners for any traffic area, not being a licence which is for the time being of no effect by reason of its suspension.

(3)Every road service licence granted in pursuance of this section shall include a statement that it is so granted.

(4)No appeal shall lie under section 50 of this Act from a decision of the traffic commissioners to refuse to grant a road service licence in pursuance of this section.
