HC Deb 02 August 1939 vol 350 cc2381-2W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the report of the chief constable of the Lancashire County Police on the Home Office experimental motor-patrol scheme; and whether he will consider what further steps can be taken to eliminate from the roads drivers who show no regard for the safety of others unless they think that a police officer is watching them?

Captain Wallace

Yes, Sir; I have read this report with interest. I am satisfied that the courts already have ample powers to deal with dangerous or careless drivers by disqualifying them from driving.
