§ 64. Mr. EVERARD
asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been called to the remarks of Mr. Justice Rigby Swift, at Leicester assizes, in which the learned Judge referred to the vital necessity at an early date of legislation rendering compulsory insurance of all motor vehicles against third-party risks; and if he will consider the advisability, from the point of view of all road users, of initiating such legislation?
§ The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel Ashley)
My attention has not been drawn to the remarks of the learned Judge. I may say, however, that I have received many representations on the question of compulsory insurance by motorists against third-party risks, and I am carefully considering the point in connection with the proposals which are now before mo for legislation with regard to road vehicles.
