HC Deb 11 May 1960 vol 623 cc61-2W
28. Mr. Darling

asked the Minister of Transport how many road accidents covered by his recent investigation were attributable to defective vision in those concerned; and if he will now introduce eyesight tests for applicants for driving licences, and periodic tests for licence holders.

Mr. Hay

The Road Research Laboratory's investigation into fatal accidents during the Christmas holiday period has not yet been completed, and I cannot therefore give the information for which the hon. Member asks. With regard to the second part of the Question, I have nothing at present to add to the Answer I gave to a Question by the hon. Member on 27th January.
