§ Mr. NAYLOR
asked the Minister of Transport if he is able to state the result of using the special experimental road surface in New Bridge Street, London, E.C.; and whether the tests imposed have been satisfactory in regard to the prevention of side-slip and skidding of motor vehicles?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
The rubber pavement referred to was laid in October, 1926. Fairly extensive repairs have been found necessary; but sufficient time has not elapsed to enable a definite conclusion to be drawn as to its durability. No special tests have been made with regard to side-ship or skidding.
