HC Deb 26 May 1952 vol 501 cc98-9W
66. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Transport if he will publish the report on motor cycling accidents submitted to him recently by the Road Safety Committee; and what recommendations contained in it he proposes to adopt.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

This report was published on 20th May, but I am not yet in a position to make a statement on the Committee's recommendations.

84. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in order to reduce the number of motor cycling accidents, he will require future applicants for motor cycle licences to pass the training test devised by the Royal Automobile Club and the Auto-Cycle Union.

Mr. Braithwaite

No. Apart from other considerations, this training scheme, although valuable, could cater for only a minority of new motor cyclists.
