HC Deb 02 December 1931 vol 260 cc1062-3
17. Vice-Admiral TAYLOR

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider amending Regulation No. 14 of the Equipment and Use Regulations (No. 2), of 4th July, 1931, under the Road Traffic Act, so as to enable public service vehicles of all classes to carry three children in the seating accommodation for two adults, as was the custom prior to this Act and was accepted by local authorities and insurance companies?


I have this point in mind for consideration in connection with any general revision or consolidation of the recent regulations.

Vice-Admiral TAYLOR

May I have an assurance that this matter will be very seriously considered, as it puts a great hardship upon the trade?


I can assure the hon. and gallant Member that we are seriously considering it.

Lieut. - Colonel Sir FREDERICK HALL

Is it necessary to keep a matter like this in abeyance until the general regulations are changed? Could not the hon. Member consider the expediency of a matter such as this?


I will consider it.
