asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport, whether he can state the policy of his Department towards trackless trolleys; and whether, in view of the need of efficient roads where they are used, he is stimulating the policy, in all these cases, of more enduring road reconstruction?

Subject to the design and weight of trackless trolley vehicles being suitable to the roads on which they are run, I see no general objection to them, but each case must be judged on its merits. There is no substantial difference from a road damage point of view between trackless trolley vehicles, motor omnibuses and other heavy traffic, and no special kind of road reconstruction is necessary.
