HC Deb 28 June 1905 vol 148 c360

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been called to the regulations existing in France controlling the issue of licences to chauffeurs, and other matters relating to motor-cars; whether he will consider the advisability of placing similar restrictions on the issue of licences in the United Kingdom; and will he also requite licence-holders to have their photographs on their licences, as abroad.

(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) I am aware of the requirements of the French motor-car regulations. The question of amending the present system, of issuing licences to motor drivers is one of the subjects that will be considered in, the course of the inquiry into the working of the Motor-Car Acts which the Government propose to institute.
