HC Deb 03 August 1905 vol 151 cc58-9

To ask the President of the Local Government Board if he will consider the expediency of arranging for a Return to be kept of the number of licences issued to professional chauffeurs and to male and female motorists respectively.

(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) I presume that the hon. Member desires that when persons apply for licences they should give information on the points referred to, and that the particulars should be recorded in the registers kept by the local authorities. The arrangement would involve some difficulty, and I am not at present aware of any sufficient reason for adopting it.
