HC Deb 03 July 1935 vol 303 c1852
29. Sir W. BRASS

asked the Minister of Transport whether arrangements could be made for the printers so to expedite their work as to be in a position to deliver the copies of the new Highway Code to the Post Office for distribution to all householders before August Bank Holiday; and how many copies will be involved?


Yes, Sir. Arrangements have been made for distribution of the new Highway Code to all householders between the 22nd July and the 2nd August, which is the Friday preceding Bank Holiday. The first print will be 16½ million copies, of which 13,000,000 will be distributed through the Post Office.


While thanking my right hon. Friend for his reply, may I ask him whether the foreword, written by himself, will be given to us so that we can read it before it is published?


Certainly; I will send it to my hon. and gallant Friend.
