§ Sir W. de FRECE
asked the Minister of Transport whether His Majesty's Government intend to introduce a Traffic 249W Bill in the coining Session; whether, in that case, it will be on the lines of the draft Bill which has already been circulated to local authorities; and, if not, whether the draft of the proposed new Measure will be similarly circulated to them for their comments before it is introduced?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
As regards, the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to-day to the hon. and gallant Member for Chelmsford (Colonel Howard-Bury), of which I am sending him a copy. The suggestions received from local authorities and from other bodies on the provisions of the Draft Road Traffic Bill, circulated by my predecessor, have been carefully noted, and at present I see no reason for supposing that it will be necessary to circulate any proposed new Measure to local authorities for their comments before its introduction.
