HC Deb 05 February 1929 vol 224 cc1601-2W
Major GLYN

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the discomfort and annoyance caused to residents living in houses bordering upon roads in even remote country districts when reliability motor-bicycle trial runs are organised over extensive routes in such a manner that throughout the night in frequent succession these motor-bicycles proceed at high speed and with considerable noise through the towns and villages on the circuit; and whether, in view of the nuisance created, the Home Office will take any action to mitigate this growing practice?


I am afraid I have no power to deal with the special circumstances to which my hon. and gallant Friend calls attention short of wholesale prosecutions for exceeding the speed limit.
