HC Deb 29 November 1928 vol 223 c625W
Colonel APPLIN

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the nuisance caused by motorists sounding their horns at night, and in the early hours of the morning, to attract the attention of their friends in the house at which their car is waiting; and whether he will take steps to put a stop to the practice of sounding horns at night for any purpose other than the warning of users of the road of their approach?

Colonel ASHLEY

I have been asked to answer this question. This point among others is being considered by the conference which I convened a short time ago to consider the steps to be taken for the mitigation of unnecessary noise caused by motor traffic. I am expecting a report from the conference very shortly.
