§ 41. Mr. Hastings
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department in how many cases in the last five years he has approved byelaws of any local authority which have included a clause to make spitting in the roadway of a built-up area an offence.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
Byelaws prohibiting spitting on paved footways have been made by five borough councils and one county council in the last five years. So far as I am aware no byelaws have been made by local authorities prohibiting spitting in the roadway.
