§ Major OWEN
asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the recent motor reliability trials which took place on a Sunday in the parish of Caerhun, Carnarvonshire; whether he is aware that as a result the surface of a mountain road three miles long, leading from Roe Wen, has been so ploughed up as to render it impracticable for use to the adjoining farms; and what steps he proposes to take to prevent the recurrence of such trials or to compel the motor clubs concerned to make good the damage caused thereby?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
My attention had not been drawn to this trial; I have no power to compel any person to make good any damage that may have been caused by it. On the subject of reliability trials generally I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on the 13th December to questions by the hon. Member for Flintshire, of which I am sending him a copy.
