HC Deb 19 July 1927 vol 209 cc217-8
30. Mr. LOOKER

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider making a regulation that all chars-a-bancs proceeding on trips of more than one day's duration shall carry an attendant in addition to the driver so that the safety and interests of the passengers in case of emergency may be safeguarded?

Colonel ASHLEY

I have no power to make a regulation of this kind.


Does the right hon. Gentleman concur in the view that it is desirable that these chars-a-bancs shall carry an extra attendant?

Colonel ASHLEY

I do not go quite so far as that, but I concur in the view that certáin inspections and examinations are necessary.


Is this matter under the consideration of his Department?

Colonel ASHLEY

It is no more under the consideration of the Department than many of these questions, but it can be dealt with under the Road Traffic Bill.

Forward to
