§ Mr. Viant
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that all the Government-owned motor vehicles used by the United States of America Postal Department are equipped with governors limiting the speed of the vehicles to their statutory limits; and will he consider a similar procedure for the motor vehicles of his 1824W Department as a contribution to road safety?
§ Major Tryon
I am aware that the vans of the United States of America Postal Department are so fitted and a similar device is incorporated in some of the heavier vans and all the motor cycles for telegraph delivery used by the British Post Office. Such devices however limit engine power and they can only be used in circumstances where full engine power is not required.
