§ 60. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the constantly increasing number of accidents on the roads, he will consider the practicability of instituting a driving test for every driver of a mechanically propelled vehicle in addition to or in lieu of the, 5s. driving licence which is now imposed?
§ Sir E. GEDDES
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Hammersmith (Mr. Foreman) on Tuesday last, a copy of which I am sending to him. The question he specifically refers to is covered by that reply also.
§ Mr. BILLING
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that since the War ever-increasing numbers of incompetent drivers have come upon the roads, causing increased accidents: and having special regard to that, will he consider the advisability of imposing a severe test before any man can take a lorry on the road?
