HC Deb 31 January 1878 vol 237 cc722-3

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether, in the Highways Bill, he would be disposed to introduce a Clause for the regulation of wheels, seeing that since the removal of turn- pike gates the width of wheels of ordinary vehicles has been in many cases altered, to the detriment of the roads?


in reply, said, that in the Bill referred to by the hon. Baronet, which he hoped would be in the hands of hon. Members on, if not before, Saturday, he had introduced a clause which would enable County Boards, among other things, to mate regulations as to the width of the wheels of vehicles.
