HC Deb 17 July 1924 vol 176 cc564-5
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?


I cannot add anything to the reply which I gave on the 3rd instant.

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?
