HC Deb 16 April 1934 vol 288 cc703-4
52. Sir W. BRASS

asked the Minister of Transport whether he can inform the House of the approximate number of vehicles of the different types, as specified in Sub-section (1) of Section 2 of the Road Traffic Act, 1930, which were using the roads during the years 1930, 1931, 1932, and 1933, respectively?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

An annual census of vehicles for which licences were current at any time during the quarter ended 30th September has been published for some years and will, I hope, provide my hon. and gallant Friend with the information he requires, although it does not precisely accord with the classification of vehicles in the Section to which he refers.


Does the return to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers give the various categories of motor bicycles and light motor cars?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

It does not divide vehicles between motor cars and heavy motor cars.
