HC Deb 30 May 1921 vol 142 c567
23. Viscount CURZON

asked the Minister of Transport whether motor vehicles brought over to England under a foreign triptych are now compelled to adopt a special number plate and special number, whereas English motor vehicles are allowed to travel abroad with English number plates; what is the reason for such a Regulation; and can it be considered by the House of Commons before being enforced?


No change has been made with regard to the identification marks required to be carried by motor cars brought into this country by foreign tourists. If my Noble Friend has in mind any particular case in which difficulties have arisen, and will furnish me with particulars, I will have inquiries made at once.

Viscount CURZON

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Automobile Association are issuing now special number plates for cars imported into the country?


I think that it is only for cars that do not come into the general arrangement, but I do not think that there has been any alteration in the practice.
