HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 cc155-6W
Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will take steps to prohibit the use of mascots and other metal emblems on the bonnets of cars, in view of the needless damage they can cause in an accident.

Mr. Marples

No mascot likely to cause injury to a person may be carried on a motor vehicle registered on or after 1st October, 1937, in such a position that it is likely to strike anyone with whom the vehicle may collide, and all parts and accessories of a vehicle must at all times be in such a condition that no danger is caused or is likely to be caused to any person on the vehicle or on a road.
