HC Deb 22 July 1936 vol 315 c440
57. Sir W. BRASS

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that drivers of motor cars with small luggage trailers attached are being prosecuted for exceeding 30 miles per hour on open country roads; and whether he will consider, while leaving this speed limit in force for caravan trailers, making a regulation exempting these small vehicles?


Parliament decided in 1934 to make special provision for two-wheeled trailers, the motor cars drawing which are allowed a speed of 30 miles per hour as against 20.


Is my right hon. Friend aware that if a lorry were driven to Scotland with a small luggage trailer attached, it would have to go at 30 miles an hour all the way?


In view of the circumstances that cannot be considered unreasonable.
