HC Deb 08 February 1934 vol 285 cc1328-9W

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that, although it has been the policy of the Ministry for a number of years now to bring as many road vehicles as possible on to pneumatic tyres, no special speed limit is scheduled for tractors equipped with pneumatic tyres as with goods vehicles, and pneumatic-tyred tractors are not, like other vehicles, given the benefit of a lower licence duty; and whether there is any possibility of these anomalies being rectified in the near future?


I have noted the hon. Member's suggestions for consideration, but am unable to make any statement on a matter partly affecting taxation.
