HC Deb 14 July 1931 vol 255 cc426-8

1. Sub-section (3) of Section sixty-one of the Road Traffic Act, 1930 (which provides that certain motor vehicles if used or allowed to be used without reward for carrying eight or more passengers are to be treated as contract carriages) shall cease to have effect.—[Mr. Herbert Morrison.]

Brought up, and read the First time.


I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time."

The Clause is printed but it is not in the Bill at the present time.

Clause added to the Bill.

Bill reported; as amended, considered.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read the Third time."


I have only one thing to say, and that is to point out how these proceedings refute the arguments of those who are accustomed to say that the House of Commons is too dilatory.

The remaining Orders were read, and postponed.

It being after half-past Eleven of the Clock upon Tuesday evening, Mr. SPEAKER adjourned the House, without Question put, pursuant to the Standing Order.

Adjourned at Ten Minutes after Two o'clock.
