HC Deb 03 December 1926 vol 200 cc1559-60W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he proposes in his promised Bill to deal with the practice of granting motor-driving licences to applicants who are totally deaf and otherwise suffering from physical defects?

Colonel ASHLEY

As I have previously stated, the general question of the issue of driving licences to persons suffering from physical disabilities is receiving my consideration in connection with the Bill for the better regulation and control of road vehicles which I hope to introduce so soon as Parliamentary time is available.
