Mr. ALFRED T. DAVIES
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?
