HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 cc153-4W
51. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Transport what progress he has made in consultations with the insurance companies about accident-proneness; whether the companies will be able to draw statistical conclusions; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Marples

This matter was discussed at a meeting on 7th July with the Chairman of the British Insurance Association, the Chairman of Lloyds and others. We noted a number of practical difficulties which would arise in trying to use insurance records. A small committee of those concerned will examine this whole question. No quick results can be expected.
