§ Captain TERRELL
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport if any tests are being made of the use of the country roads by long-distance chars-à-banc with the object of arriving at, a better apportionment of the responsibility for the upkeep of those thoroughfares?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
The traffic census taken last year on the Class I roads of the United Kingdom contains a special heading: "Motor omnibuses (including motor coaches)," but particulars as to the length of journey are not collected, and I doubt whether it would be practicable to do so. A census of traffic on Class II roads will be taken during the month of August this year, following the same procedure as that adopted in the case of the Class I roads.
