§ 61. Mr. WILLIAM THORNE
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether the Secretary of the Board had communicated with the town clerk of West Ham to the effect that the Board were empowered to deal, under Section 6 of the Locomotives on Highways Act, 1896, with mud-splashing by motor omnibuses, but that they were not in a position to make a regulation at the present time; and whether the reasons for this inability can be stated, in view of the nuisance and expense which is caused in wet weather by the mud thrown from the wheels of motor omnibuses?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the latter part, I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the question of the hon. Member for Oldham on Monday last.
