§ 17. Mr. PARKINSON
asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the many cases where the driver of a commercial motor vehicle is compelled by the nature of his employment to commit a breach of the law, he will issue definite instructions to the Metropolitan police to make inquiries on this point before taking proceedings against a driver for an offence for which the employer may be primarily responsible?
§ Mr. HACKING
My right hon. Friend has every sympathy with the hon. Member in the point he has in mind, but he does not think that any further or special instructions are required.
