HC Deb 07 April 1921 vol 140 c476W

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the urgent need for codifying and simplifying the numerous regulations for motor traffic; whether any representations on the subject have been made by the police authorities; and whether he will consider the practicability of issuing such a codification of the regulations at an early date?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on 24th February to the hon. Member for Walls-end (Mr. Simm) relating to the matters at present under consideration by the Departmental Committee on the Regulation of Road Vehicles. I am sending a copy of this answer to my hon. Friend. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport is awaiting a further report from the Committee before taking any steps to promote legislation.
