§ MR. SOARES (Devonshire, Barn-staple)
To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he will lay upon the Table of the House Papers showing the laws, rules, and regulations in force with regard to motorcars in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and Switzerland, together with any available official information as to the number of motor-cars in those countries, and the number of accidents which have happened within the past twelve months.
(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) I contemplate that the Royal Commission will make inquiry as to the law and practice in relation to motor-cars in the principal foreign countries, and obtain any available information as to the experience of those countries. I think it will be best to leave the matter to them.
