§ 14. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Home Secretary whether he has given further consideration to the proposal for allowing advertisements to be placed in taxi-cabs; and can he inform the House of his intentions in this matter?
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Can the right hon. Gentleman give an assurance that we will be spared this final assault on the eyes of the public?
§ Viscount CURZON
Can the right hon. Gentleman also give an assurance that if these advertisements are permitted in taxi-cabs, the fares will be lowered accordingly?
In reply to the first Supplementary question, I cannot do more than I have said. I said I was going to ask the Commissioner to judge the proposal on its merits.
§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
Surely this is the Capital of the Empire. Has not the House of Commons some say on the question of the further disfigurement of public vehicles in London?
