HC Deb 30 July 1906 vol 162 cc409-10
MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that drivers of motor omnibuses find it difficult to regulate the speed to the limit specfied under the Act owing to the vehicles not being provided with speed indicators; and will he consider the expediency of communicating with the proprietors of those omnibuses on the subject.

(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) The adoption of speed indicators is not required by law, and the Royal Commission on Motor Cars state in their Report that they cannot recommend that it should be. In these circumstances I do not at present see my way to act on the suggestion of my hon. friend.
