MR. CATHCART WASON
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if he is aware that a record-breaking motor-car tour is now being undertaken from Land's End to John o' Groats; and if the police will be instructed to see that the provisions of Clause 9 of the Motor-Car Act, 1903, are not infringed in Scotland.
* MR. A. GRAHAM MURRAY
I have received no official intimation of any such tour, but the newspaper reports which I have seen point to a record in the sense of the length of time without stopping the engine rather than any excessive speed. In any case the police have full instructions as to the Motor-Car Act and I have no reason, to suppose they will fail to be guided by such instructions.
