43Supplementary provisions as to permits under section 42

(1)A permit under section 42 of this Act shall be in such form as may be prescribed under section 44 of this Act and, subject to subsection (5) below, shall specify—

(a)the body to whom it is granted ; and

(b)the vehicle in respect of which it is granted.

(2)In addition to any conditions contained in it by virtue of section 42(4)(b) of this Act, a permit under that section shall contain such conditions as the traffic commissioners or other body granting it consider appropriate including, in particular, conditions—

(a)limiting the passengers who may be carried in the vehicle in pursuance of the permit to persons falling within such classes as may be specified in the permit; and

(b)with respect to such other matters as may be prescribed under section 44 of this Act.

(3)A permit under section 42 of this Act may not be so varied as to substitute another body for the body to whom it was granted or another vehicle for the vehicle to which it relates but, subject thereto,—

(a)a permit under that section which is granted by a body designated under subsection (4) thereof may be varied or revoked by that body or, after consultation with that body, by the traffic commissioners for any traffic area in which the vehicle concerned has been used in pursuance of the permit; and

(b)a permit under that section which is granted by the traffic commissioners for any traffic area may be varied or revoked by them.

(4)A permit under section 42 of this Act shall remain in force until—

(a)it is revoked under subsection (3) above ; or

(b)in the case of a permit granted by a body designated under section 42(4), that body ceases to be so designated.

(5)If, having regard to the nature of a body to which they propose that a permit under section 42 of this Act should be granted, traffic commissioners or a body designated under subsection (4) of that section consider it appropriate, they may grant a permit under that section to a named individual on behalf of the body, rather than to the body itself; but a permit so granted shall be treated for the purposes of section 42 and subsection (3) above as granted to the body on whose behalf it is held.
