HC Deb 01 February 1961 vol 633 c123W
58. Commander Kerans

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider instituting compulsory bicycle tests for all children before they are allowed on roads unaccompanied.

Mr. Hay:

We prefer to rely on voluntary participation in the National Child Cyclist Proficiency Scheme, and also on the good sense of parents not to allow their children to ride alone on busy roads before they are competent cyclists.
