HC Deb 17 February 1920 vol 125 cc732-3W

asked the Minister of Health if he will consider the advisability of introducing legisation in order that local authorities may be in a measure relieved of the cost of the maintenance and repair of roads and keeping them in a fit state owing to the damage caused by the use of the roads by private motor-omnibus proprietors; and if in such legislation he will provide that the owners of such motors. &c., are requested to make payment of a fair mileage rate to the highway authority?


I have been asked to answer this question. I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Burslem in reply to a similar question.
