§ 85. Mr. PENNY
asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the remarks of Mr. Justice Branson on 13th March at the York Assizes, when a motor cyclist was indicted for manslaughter by running down a 253 cyclist from behind; and whether, in view of these accidents, he will consider the desirability of introducing a Bill to make it compulsory for all cyclists to carry red rear-lamps, red reflectors, or some other distinguishing mark which can be readily detected by an overtaking driver?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
My attention has not previously been drawn to the remarks of the learned Judge, With regard to the second part of the question, as I have already stated, the regulation, including lighting, of road vehicles will fall within the scope of the contemplated Bill.
