HC Deb 19 April 1967 vol 745 c586
40. Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Transport what studies are being made on the desirability of introducing a right-hand driving system, similar to continental practice, in this country; and how much she estimates this would cost.

Mr. John Morris

Studies are being made of the advantages and disadvantages of a change to driving on the right. Preliminary estimates show that the cost would be very high, probably about £350 million if 10 years' warning were given.

Mr. Wall

Are any consultations being held on this matter with the interested bodies?

Mr. Morris

I am not aware that any such consultations are at present taking place.
