HC Deb 17 March 1937 vol 321 cc2077-8W
Mr. C. Wilson

asked the Home Secretary whether, in the training of the new 800 police patrols, any instructions will be given in the steps to be taken to make effective the advice in the Highway Code to motorists against taking alcohol during or before driving?

Mr. Lloyd

I think the hon. Member must refer to the paragraph which saysBefore using the road be sure that your alertness or sense of caution is not affected by alcohol or fatigue. I do not think this is a provision which could very well be enforced by the police.
