HC Deb 16 August 1920 vol 133 c621W
Major NALL

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in drafting new legislation for road traffic, he will consider the possibility of requiring all drivers to be insured against third-party risks; and whether he is aware that many owner-drivers are financially unable to stand heavy claims, with resulting hardship both to themselves and the damaged parties?


I thank my hon. and gallant Friend for his important suggestion, but the difficulties surrounding its adoption are so numerous and formidable that my right hon. Friend the Minister does not see his way to adopt it.
