HC Deb 30 July 1936 vol 315 c1764W

asked the Home Secretary whether his 'attention has been drawn to the increasing number of accidents to riders on speedways; whether he is aware that is due to a lack of elementary precaution; that, because the riders are not regular employés, very little regard is paid to their safety and riders, unfit to take part on account of previous injuries, are even encouraged to continue riding; and whether he will consider the desirability of instituting an inquiry into the conditions which prevail?


No, Sir. I do not think an inquiry into the sport of motor cycle racing is called for.
