§ 86. Sir A. WARREN
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether, having regard to the number of accidents, many of them not only serious but fatal, that have occurred which are directly attributable to the carrying of passengers upon the carriers of motor bicycles, what steps he proposes to take to constitute the carrying of passengers upon the carriers, of motor bicycles an offence and punishable accordingly?
