HC Deb 28 February 1924 vol 170 cc661-2
32. Mr. MARLEY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the increasing traffic difficulties and increase of street accidents, any steps can be taken to alter the existing regulations in regard to the more or less indiscriminate issue without test of licences to drivers of motors and motor cycles?


I have been asked to answer this question. The whole question has been most carefully investigated by the Departmental Committee, and, while they were unable to recommend the institution of tests for the drivers of motor vehicles, they made certain suggestions for the modification of the existing law and regulations on the subject. I am awaiting a suitable opportunity to introduce a Bill giving effect to these, among other, recommendations of the Committee.

Forward to
