HC Deb 18 July 1902 vol 111 c668
MR. CROMBIE (Kincardineshire)

To ask the Lord Advocate whether his attention has been called to the frequent difficulties which Scottish traction engine owners meet from road authorities and the police, as to damages to roads and precautions for public safety; and whether he will consider the advisability of some alteration of the law in the direction recently adopted in the English Act.

(Answered by Mr. Graham Murray.) The Secretary for Scotland has from time to time received memorials both from locomotive owners and from road authorities suggesting legislation to amend the Locomotives on Roads Acts, and such legislation will receive consideration on the first favourable opportunity.
