(e)   Manchester Part (1) Scheme (Contd.)

The Chairman asked for a meeting of the Sub-Committee to be held at an early date and for target dates for completion of servicing and maintenance arrangements at each depot to be fixed at this meeting.


Mr.Tonge produced proof of art folder which will be used as each scheme comes into operation and also a sketch of a diesel car which will be used for press advertising, and asked if he could be given early notice of target dates for introduction of future schemes in order that he could arrange the necessary hiring of poster sites.

In such publicity the introduction of the diesel services will be linked with the Modernisation Plan.
