HC Deb 05 June 1930 vol 239 cc2364-5

asked the Home Secretary whether any steps have yet been taken to instruct the police as to what constitutes dangerous and reckless driving of motor vehicles, respectively; and whether he will insist upon an adequate interval being allowed for such instruction before the Road Traffic Bill becomes law and the speed limit is removed for private motor vehicles?


I have already informed the hon. Member that I do not contemplate the issue of any circular to the police until the Bill has assumed final form, and, having regard to the publicity which the provisions in question have received, and to the experience which the police already possess in dealing with motor car offences, I see no necessity on that account alone for delaying the coming into force of these particular provisions beyond such date as general considerations of administrative requirements may indicate.
