HC Deb 21 November 1956 vol 560 c1736
25. Mr. G. R. Strauss

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what progress has been made in organising the compulsory testing of road vehicles.

Mr. Watkinson

Much work has gone into the preparation of detailed proposals for the testing of vehicles as envisaged by Sections 1 and 2 of the Road Traffic Act, 1956. I hope to circulate an outline of these proposals in the near future to the organisations representing local authorities and other interested bodies, in order to prepare the way for full discussion.

Mr. Strauss

I am glad to hear that. May I take it that Members will be able to see these draft proposals in some form or other?

Mr. Watkinson

Yes, Sir.
