§ Mr. HAROLD COX
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to any apparatus for controlling the speed of motor omnibuses so as to prevent the possibility of their travelling beyond a fixed maximum; and, if so, whether he will cause experiments to be made with such apparatus with a view to its application to motor omnibuses within the Metropolitan area.
§ * THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. GLADSTONE,) Leeds, W.
I understand that there is no such contrivance actually in use, but it is possible that mechanism which would effect the object proposed may be invented. In that event the Commissioner of Police will carefully consider the question of requiring such apparatus to be fitted to motor omnibuses in the Metropolis.
§ * MR. GLADSTONE
said it was rather difficult to say whether it would be within his power to do so.
