§ Mr. Steele
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans he has to introduce regulations providing for the control of motor rallies in Scotland; and when he will do so.
§ Mr. Ross
I have decided, after consulting the Association of County Councils and the Chief Constables (Scotland) Association, that motor rallies in Scotland should be subject to the same control as in England and Wales, and the Royal Automobile Club have offered to act as the controlling body for Scotland also. After further discussion with the Royal Automobile Club, I have decided that Scottish regulations need not be introduced until next year when some experience of working the system in England and Wales will have been gained. I am glad to say that few rallies in Scotland have led to serious public complaint so far.
