HC Deb 21 March 1906 vol 154 cc365-6
MR. NIELD (Middlesex, Ealing)

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether His Majesty's Government will inform the House if they propose to introduce, during the present session or in an early session of Parliament, legislation to deal with the question of the extraordinary traffic on highways, caused by the increase of heavy motors and traction engines using such roads, and to confer greater powers upon local authorities in respect of such traffic.

(Answered by Sir H. Campbell-Bannerman.) The Government do not contemplate proposing any legislation on the subject this session, and they cannot make any promise as regards next session.
