HC Deb 16 July 1919 vol 118 cc411-2W

asked the Home Secretary whether, having regard to the number of accidents, many of them fatal, that have occurred which are directly attributable to the carrying of passengers upon the carriers of motor bicycles, owing to which practice the driver cannot have proper control of the machine, and the consequent danger to the public, he will, in view of the increasing number of motor bicycles coming on the roads, consider the desirability of so amending the Motor Car Acts as to constitute the practice referred to an offence and punishable accordingly?


I have been asked to reply to this question. I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to the question of the hon. Member for Edmonton and Keighley on the 30th June.
