HC Deb 30 June 1955 vol 543 c44W
63. Sir N. Hulbert

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department by what authority police officers in the Metropolitan area are authorised to ask the age of motorists stopped for alleged breaches of the Road Traffic Acts.

Major Lloyd-George

I am informed by the Commissioner of Police that it is not the practice of the Metropolitan police to ask the age of a person reported for a traffic offence, unless he appears to be a juvenile.
