HC Deb 21 March 1922 vol 152 c222
35. Captain Viscount CURZON

asked the Home Secretary whether it is proposed to enforce the straphanging Regulations in omnibuses and tramcars on and from 1st April next; and, if so, whether, in view of the obvious inadequacy of the public means of transport during such hours, on special occasions, and under certain weather conditions, he can ensure that the police will, at least, be given discretionary powers in enforcing the Regulation referred to when the foregoing conditions prevail?


As I stated in my reply of the 13th instant, the whole question is under consideration, and I cannot at present make any statement on the subject Viscount CURZON: Has any decision yet been come to?


No decision has been come to.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the late Minister of Transport promised to make a personal experiment in strap-hanging?
