HC Deb 21 June 1920 vol 130 cc1716-7
17. Viscount CURZON

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the statement of Lord Ashfield that experiments were being carried out, and probably a large number of public service vehicles would be equipped in the near future with pneumatic tyres; whether his Department is represented at such trials; and whether special attention will be given to the possible grave danger resulting from the bursting of such tyres on public service vehicles?


The Minister of Transport is kept informed of the progress of the experiments referred to in the first part of the question, though my Department is not represented at the trials. The point referred to in the last part of the question has not been overlooked.
