HC Deb 08 December 1952 vol 509 c3W
58. Mr. Higgs

asked the Minister of Transport what inquiries he has made into the extent to which road accidents are caused by drivers whose vision is to some extent defective but still within the limits specified for the issue of a driver's licence.

Mr. Braithwaite

A joint panel of the Medical Research Council and the Road Research Board have considered this question in the report about to be submitted to the Road Research Board. A good deal of further research into this difficult matter will be necessary.
