HC Deb 20 December 1934 vol 296 c1361W
Major OWEN

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the recent motor reliability trials which took place on a Sunday in the parish of Caerhun, Carnarvonshire; whether he is aware that as a result the surface of a mountain road three miles long, leading from Roe Wen, has been so ploughed up as to render it impracticable for use to the adjoining farms; and what steps he proposes to take to prevent the recurrence of such trials or to compel the motor clubs concerned to make good the damage caused thereby?


My attention had not been drawn to this trial; I have no power to compel any person to make good any damage that may have been caused by it. On the subject of reliability trials generally I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on the 13th December to questions by the hon. Member for Flintshire, of which I am sending him a copy.
