HC Deb 19 December 1938 vol 342 c2493W
Mr. Viant

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that the large number of motor accidents which occur during periods of rain are due to the fact that when motor drivers are turning corners their vision becomes blurred by the presence of moisture and dirt on their windscreen, he will have Post Office vehicles installed with dual windscreen wipers?

Major Tryon

I can find no evidence to support the suggestion that Post Office motor vehicles have been involved in a large number of accidents owing to the absence of dual windscreen wipers. All Post Office motor vehicles comply fully with the Regulations made under the Road Traffic Act and I see no reason to go beyond them.
