HC Deb 11 July 1934 vol 292 c317
20. Colonel GOODMAN

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the provision of the order governing the speed limit in the City of Oxford whereby no corroboration is necessary of the evidence of a constable's estimate of the speed of a car in cases brought before the magistrates for exceeding the prescribed limit; and whether, as such corroboration is required under the Road Traffic Act, he will cause the order to be so amended as to bring its provisions in accordance with the terms of the Act?


I have no power to provide in this or similar orders for corroboration of evidence as to speed, but an Amendment to the Road Traffic Bill to meet the point will be moved in another place.
