HC Deb 30 July 1906 vol 162 c461
MR. WEIR (ROSS and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware I that, at a meeting of Kilburn tradesmen on the evening of the 23rd instant, the menace to local trade caused by motor omnibuses was discussed, and a resolution carried declaring that the present service of motor buses along the High Road, Kilburn, was dangerous and distasteful, and expressing the opinion that the speed should not exceed seven miles an hour; and will he state what action it is proposed to take in regard to this and any other similar resolutions.


I have seen a report of the mooting at Kilburn. I fear I can only refer my hon. friend to the Answer which I gave to his Question respecting accidents on the l9th of this month, in which I stated that under existing powers stops have been taken and are being taken to mitigate the nuisances complained of.
