HC Deb 02 July 1930 vol 240 c1949
35. Mr. DAY

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the dangers arising to the public through excessive hours of labour worked by drivers of licensed chars-a-banes and motor omnibuses on long-distance routes; and whether he has taken any action in the matter?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Herbert Morrison)

My attention has been drawn to the matter to which my hon. Friend refers and provisions to deal with it are included in Clauses 19 and 92 of the Road Traffic Bill now before Parliament.


Have the officers of the Department made any investigation into these complaints?


I am quite satisfied that bona fide complaints exist, and therefore, without waiting for the officers of my Department to take action, I took legislative action in the Road Traffic Bill.
