§ MR. BROOKE ROBINSON (Dudley)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether the inquiry into the working of the Motor-Car Act, 1903, will be open to the publi; and whether its scope will enable the Royal Commissioners to consider the position of cottagers and others who, from their dwellings being on the roadside, suffer from the dust occasioned by the present motor-car traffic.
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
It will be for the Royal Commission to decide whether their proceedings shall be open to the public or not. The Answer to the latter part of the Question is in the affirmative.
