HC Deb 20 April 1931 vol 251 c615
88. Colonel HOWARD-BURY

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has now approached the insurance companies with regard to the reduction of the size of motor insurance certificates; and whether he can state what has been the result of his representations?

Mr. CHARLETON (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. My right hon. Friend caused a copy of the question asked by the hon. and gallant Member on 4th February, together with a copy of his answer and of the supplementary question and answer, to be brought to the notice of authorised insurers who issue certificates under the Act, and they have undertaken, where certificates are larger than is strictly necessary, to make a reduction in the size on the occasion of a reprint.


Can the hon. Member now say whether it will be of a size which will go comfortably into the pocket?


I could not.
