HC Deb 16 February 1914 vol 58 cc575-6
45. Mr. HARRIS

asked the Prime Minister whether His Majesty's Government have considered the Report of the Select Committee on London Traffic which was presented last Session; and whether they propose to take steps in the present Session for establishing some adequate authority for the regulation of such traffic?

51. Mr. F. HALL

asked the Prime Minister if the Government has considered the recommendations made by the Select Committee on Motor Traffic for further securing public safety in the streets of the Metropolitan area; if, in view of the urgency of the matter, the Government intends to introduce and press forward proposals for dealing with such of the recommendations as require legislative sanction; whether legislation will be necessary to establish a special traffic branch of the Board of Trade on the lines sug- gested; and if it is proposed to take the necessary steps with that object in the present Session?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

The matter is receiving the careful consideration of the various Departments concerned.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the House will be given an opportunity of discussing the report?


I cannot say-that; perhaps my hon. Friend will give notice of that question.


Can the right hon. Gentleman reply to the latter part of the second question?


The matter is under consideration by the Departments, and I would rather not give an answer.
