HC Deb 21 June 1928 vol 218 cc1785-6W

asked the Minister of Transport whether his promised Road Transport Bill provides for the necessity of motor vehicles licensed to carry passengers being fitted with first-aid outfits; and, if not, whether he will consider the desirability of making it compulsory for such outfits to be installed in all such vehicles in the interests of public safety?

Colonel ASHLEY

The draft Road Traffic Bill which I circulated last year would empower me to prescribe the conditions with which the equipment of motor omnibuses and motor coaches would have to comply, but I doubt whether it would be considered reasonable to make the carrying of first-aid outfits by all public service vehicles compulsory.
