HC Deb 26 February 1912 vol 34 cc1155-6W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he will state why the recent regulation forbidding the use of a cut-out on motor cars was not also made applicable to motor cycles?


I did not find it practicable to apply the recent regulation as to the use of a cut-out to motor cycles. What is required in the case of a motor cycle is not merely that the use of a cutout should be prohibited, but that the cycle should be provided with an effective silencer, and I have under consideration the question of issuing an Order on the subject.
