HC Deb 04 June 1931 vol 253 cc347-8

asked the Minister of Transport the number of orders and regulations made by him under the Road Traffic Act, 1930; and whether they are all available to Members of this House?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Herbert Morrison)

Thirty-one Orders and Regulations have been made under the Road Traffic Act, 1930, of which three have been revoked and suspended by subsequent Orders or Regulations. Of the remainder, a number deal with the fixing of the dates of commencement of different sections of the Act, or other formal matters. Copies can be obtained by Members through the Vote Office in the usual way. It is my intention, when the Regulations which are of general interest have assumed a permanent form, to have them grouped according to their subject matter, and made available in a convenient and compact shape. I may add that one of the new Regulations takes the place of no fewer than 26 Orders and Regulations under earlier Acts, and other Regulations supersede a very large number of local by-laws and orders.
