§ 32. Mr. HUTCHISON
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider redrafting the regulation issued under the London Traffic Act, 1924, which prevents the use of motor vehicles for the purposes of advertisement, in order to make it clear that it applies only to such vehicles which, by reason of their special construction or conduct, cause danger or obstruction to other traffic?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
The Regulations to which my hon. Friend refers provide that in the area within three miles of Charing Cross and in certain specified important thoroughfares outside that area, within the Metropolitan Police District, no person shall drive a vehicle either wholly or 1939 mainly for the purposes of advertising. I am informed by the Commissioners of Police that proceedings are taken only when the vehicles appear to be likely to be a source of danger or to cause obstruction to traffic.
