HC Deb 03 July 1906 vol 159 cc1596-7
MR. W. F. D. SMITH (Strand, Westminster)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether there is any limit laid down to the weight and size of the motor omnibus; and whether in considering regulations for governing the future use of this class of vehicles, there will be taken into consideration the great vibration caused by them, especially when fully loaded and proceeding at a considerable pace over an uneven surface.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) Limits as to the weight, length, height, and width of motor omnibuses have been laid down in a regulation which is now under the consideration of a Select Committee of the House of Commons, who will, no doubt, in their Report, deal with the vibration caused by these vehicles.
