HC Deb 11 March 1929 vol 226 c808W

asked the Minister of Transport for what purpose new Regulations concerning motor-cycle number plates are being considered?

Colonel ASHLEY

The new Regulations now under consideration concerning motor-cycle number plates are intended to meet the strong representations of chief officers of police throughout the country urging that the letters and figures on the existing motor-cycle number plates are too small for the ready identification of a moving vehicle, and that the illumination of the front plate instead of the back plate is unsatisfactory.
