DIRECT STANLEY BAY BUS
"I am at a loss to understand the insinuations of Mr. Meikle that the
Devonport Borough Council's representations have never been listened to and have always been 'bashed,'" said Captain R. A. Parker, assistant i manager and traffic manager of the Devonport Ferry Company, Limited, when interviewed to-day concerning the discussion at the Devonport Borough Council last night. He was
approached in the absence of the manager, Captain Forbes, who is in Wellington. The remarks made were the more difficult to understand in view of the fact that the Ferry Company received a delegation from the North Shore Boroughs' Association recently. Their representations were now under consideration. The statements about "bashing" were altogether incorrect.
The decision not to grant a bus for the Narrow Neck area from the 11.25 p.m. boat was made by the No. 1 Licensing Authority . and it was based wholly on the acute shortage of tyres, said Mr. .A. S. Bailey, managing director of the North Shore Transport Company, Limited, when interviewed. As soon as the tyre position improved the company would be prepared to make further representations to have this bus put on the time-table. Indeed, the company had under consideration an extension of the service by running a N late bus direct from the city. This should prove a great convenience. Regarding the suggestion of the Mayor, Mr. Miller, that an advisory committee should be set up, Mr. Bailey said, that this had been in operation for some time, in conjunction with the Borough Council, and the company was always-anxious to co-operate with the local bodies to the fullest extent. Further meetings with a committee representing all the local bodies in the area would be welcomed.
