HC Deb 07 February 1962 vol 653 c61W
Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Transport when the committee to examine the question of accident proneness and insurance was formed; whether it has yet met; and when he expects to be in a position to report on their findings.

Mr. Marples

A small committee of representatives of the Road Research Laboratory, insurance interests and my Department was formed at the end of 1960. The insurance representatives are now considering a series of specific proposals on which they may be able to provide useful information. I hope another meeting to discuss these proposals will be held shortly, but I do not expect to make an early report. The proposals are not specifically related to accident proneness but cover a series of topics related to road accident research. Some of the proposals are for continuing studies.
