HC Deb 11 July 1962 vol 662 c145W
93. Mr. Dudley Smith

asked the Minister of Transport when he proposes to introduce the necessary regulations to make it compulsory for all cars to have safety belts or harnesses; and if he will further consider making it compulsory for drivers to use those belts and harnesses when a vehicle is in motion.

Mr. Marples

I propose to introduce regulations as soon as possible after the necessary consultations have been completed. With regard to the second part of the Question, I am satisfied that it would not be practicable to make the wearing of belts compulsory.
