§ Mr. WILLIAM THORNE
asked the Home Secretary if he is aware that Mr. Nash, of Walthamstow, has invented an apparatus for motor omnibuses which is a reliable instrument to justify them being made compulsory for use on all motor omnibuses; if he is aware that Mr. Nash has been twice before Mr. Beaumont, the consulting manager, Scotland Yard, and advised that it should be tried; if he is aware that Messrs. Powells, of Forest Gate, have tried the instrument for six months and it has proved absolutely reliable; and if he is prepared to consider the advisability after proper investigation to make all the motor omnibus companies have one of the instruments fixed upon their motor omnibuses?
§ Mr. McKENNA
No, Sir. There would appear to be some misapprehension about the matter, for neither I nor the Commissioner of Police are aware of this invention 1755W or its purpose, and Mr. Beaumont states that Mr. Nash has not brought any invention to his notice.
