HC Deb 24 November 1937 vol 329 cc1232-3W
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 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.
