MR CATHCART WASON
I beg to ask the Lord-Advocate if, before bringing into operation in Scotland the Orders by which motor-cars with their loads weighing up to twelve tons are permitted to be driven on public highways in England at a speed of twelve miles an hour, he will take steps to ascertain the opinion thereon of the local authorities.
THE LORD-ADVOCATE (Mr. SCOTT DICKSON, Glasgow, Bridgton)
The hon. Member may not be aware that the Heavy Motor Car (Scotland) Order, 1905, is already in force, having taken effect yesterday. The Secretary for Scotland consulted various authorities before issuing the Order, and gave consideration to their views.
