§ Mr. Benjamin Smith
asked the Minister of Transport what steps he is taking to encourage the distribution and study of the Road Code?
§ Mr. Burgin
The exhibition at present in progress at Charing Cross Underground Station has been arranged with this 1233W object. Every driver of a motor vehicle has been supplied with a copy of the Code. It forms an important element in the driving test examination; and instruction in its provisions is also given in many schools in accordance with the recommendations of the inter-Departmental Committee on Road Safety among School Children. Since its publication over 21,000,000 copies of the Code have been distributed.
