HC Deb 16 November 1926 vol 199 c1709W

asked the Minister of Transport if he has favourably considered the question of chars-a-banc, and similar vehicles carrying more than six passengers, being compelled to carry first-aid ambulance outfits; and, if so, what steps he proposes taking to ensure this measure of protection to the road-travelling public?
