Charabanc stands and tramways contest at Blackpool

Blackpool Town Council yesterday decided to allot 51 stands in the public streets, exclusive of the Promenade, for motor charabancs.

It was originally agreed only to allow ex-Service owners, who number about 24, have stands in the streets, but protest was entered by the local Motor Charabanc Owners’ Association, and the Corporation reversed their previous decision.

In 26 years the Blackpool tramways undertaking has contributed £132,000 to the relief of the rates. The amount handed over in 1918 and 1919 was £15,000, and in 1920 £lO,OOO was paid.

At the meeting of the committee yesterday was stated that the profits for the past financial year were only £144.
