HC Deb 24 May 1905 vol 146 cc1242-3
MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South Molton)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the recent and continued loss of life through the recklessness of motorcar drivers, he will consider the advisability of introducing legislation to place it within the discretion of magistrates to impose a term of imprisonment for a first offence.


My right hon. friend has asked me to reply to this Question. The Motor-Car Act expires at the end of 1906, and I will take note of the suggestion of the hon. Member with a view to its consideration before that time.
