§ 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.
