HC Deb 04 April 1957 vol 568 c69W
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.
