HC Deb 01 February 1934 vol 285 c516
12. Mr. McENTEE

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the number of prosecutions that have taken place during 1933 with regard to noisy road vehicles; and whether, in view of the increasing noise of certain types of vehicles, it is proposed to issue any new orders to secure an abatement of this nuisance?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir John Gilmour)

Preliminary figures show that during 1933 in England and Wales, 9,653 noise offences of all classes in connection with motor vehicles were dealt with by prosecution. My hon. Friend the Minister of Transport has already consulted me on the matter and is, I understand, taking it up with the manufacturers.
