HC Deb 08 February 1926 vol 191 c671W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the fact that there have lately been numerous summonses brought against deaf, dumb, or maimed drivers, who owing to their physical defects cannot observe the rules and regulations of the road for their own or other people's safety, he will introduce legislation or take steps to prevent licences being issued to people who are not entirely physically and mentally fit?

Colonel ASHLEY

I have the general question of the issue of driving licences to persons suffering from physical disabilities under consideration in connection with the Bill for the better regulation of road vehicles referred to in the Gracious Speech from the Throne.
