HC Deb 05 July 1927 vol 208 cc1082-3

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in addition to the suspension of a driving licence any other punishment for dangerous driving, he will also consider taking powers to deprive the offending driver of the use of his car for a specific period of time?

Colonel ASHLEY

I have been asked to reply. I am afraid I could not be responsible for proposing legislation on these lines.


Is it not a fact that when the road hog of to-day loses his licence it does not prevent him from driving about in a machine. Would not the fact that his car was taken from him for two months bring it home far more vividly to the man who is a dangerous driver than losing his licence?
