§ 82. Mr. ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
asked the Home Secretary whether he can state to the latest convenient date the number of persons prosecuted for sounding motor horns after 11.30 p.m. in the Metropolitan area; how many of these were convicted; and how many fined?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
Up to the present there have been no prosecutions by the Metropolitan Police under the regulations to which my hon. Friend refers. Between the 27th August, the date of commencement of the regulations, and the end of September, 1,134 verbal warnings were given. The number of verbal warnings given in October is not yet available.
§ Mr. MABANE
Can the Home Secretary say whether there have been any prosecutions of motorists for failure to give audible warning of their approach after 11.30 p.m.?
§ Sir W. BRASS
Is my right hon. Friend aware that not giving audible warning is in fact a danger when one car is passing another?
