HC Deb 03 August 1944 vol 402 c1630W
Mr. Granville

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport if he is satisfied that the war conditions of road traffic will permit, at the present time, the necessary safety facilities for massed-start cycle races during the coming Bank Holiday period.

Mr. Noel-Baker

No, Sir. Massed-start cycle racing on the public highway is, at any time, open to objection, as it may all too easily become a cause of obstruction to other traffic and of danger bath to the competitors themselves and to other users of the road.
