§ Mr. HOOD
asked the Minister of Transport whether, in consequence of the constantly increasing use of narrow country roads by chars-à-banc and the difficulty of following vehicles in passing them, he will issue an order that all such chars-à-banc shall carry a glass or mirror to enable the driver of the chars-à-banc to become aware of the approach of the following vehicles?
§ Mr. NEAL
The question of the provision of a glass or mirror upon chars-à-banc and other mechanically-propelled road vehicles to enable the driver to become aware of the approach of following vehicles is within the terms of reference of the Departmental Committee on the Regulation of Road Vehicles, and my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport hopes at a comparatively early date to receive a further Report from this Committee which will deal with this question among others. Pending the receipt of this Report he cannot see his way to take the action suggested.
