HC Deb 29 January 1941 vol 368 c578W
Mr. Woodburn

asked the Minister of Transport, whether he is prepared to take steps to standardise the bumpers of motorcars at the same distance from the ground to lessen the dangers of accidents and damage from collisions.

Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon

If bumpers are to serve their purpose they should all be at the same level. I could not at present issue regulations to compel alterations, nor are there enough private cars being manufactured to warrant new regulations at the moment. I shall hope to get the industry to agree to a standard height before motors start being manufactured again.
