HC Deb 30 October 1957 vol 575 c50W
Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he will arrange for the publication of a cheaper edition of the Highway Code so as to stimulate a wider circulation.

Mr. Watkinson

Approximately 13 million copies of the present edition of the Highway Code have been distributed free to schools, drivers and others, and free distribution continues to persons taking out a provisional driving licence for the first time, and drivers from overseas. I am not prepared in present circumstances to reduce the price of the Code or to provide a cheaper edition.
