HL Deb 01 August 1935 vol 98 c1027

Page 3, line 26, at end insert: ("(5) In determining the standard width to be adopted as respects any road, a highway authority and the Minister shall take into account the requirements of all classes of traffic, including foot passengers and cyclists likely to use the road, and shall consider the provision of margins for the accommodation of ridden horses and driven livestock.")


My Lords, this Amendment is merely a recognition of the fact that the carriageway of the fast motor road of to-day is not the ideal place for the horseman or cowherd.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Earl of Plymouth.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
