§ MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether, in view of the fact that applications by local authorities to reduce the speed limit of motors to ten miles an hour are persistently opposed by motor or automobile associations, he will consider the advisability of taking steps, by legislation or otherwise, to throw the cost of inquiry upon such associations where the opposition might be held to be frivolous.
§ MR. JOHN BURNS
I will consider the suggestion of my hon. friend, but it would require legislation, and I cannot promise him that I shall find myself able to adopt it.
