§ 62. Mr. Weitzman
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether, having regard to the danger on the road and traffic conditions, he will now restore the requirement that a learner driver be accompanied by a qualified driver.
§ Mr. Watkinson
I intend to restore this requirement as soon as learner drivers can get a driving test within a reasonable period.
§ Mr. Weitzman
Does not the Minister agree that the primary considerations ought to be the danger on the road and the congestion of traffic? Do they not constitute an unanswerable argument for the removal of the restriction and for restoring the requirement immediately?
