HC Deb 10 April 1963 vol 675 c173W
98. Mr. Dance

asked the Minister of Transport if he will consider the provision of some form of safeguard for motor traders who are asked to carry out repairs to a customer's vehicle which necessitates its use on the road when the vehicle has not been issued with the necessary test certificate.

Mr. Marples

This matter is at present the subject of correspondence between my Department and the Motor Agents' Association. But I see no case for extending the existing provisions.

Mr. Dance

asked the Minister of Transport what steps he has taken to publicise the arrangements whereby a motorist who is dissatisfied with the refusal of a test certificate for his vehicle can appeal to him.

Mr. Marples

Attention is drawn to the right of appeal, and the procedure is briefly explained, by a note clearly printed on the form issued to a vehicle owner when a test certificate is refused.
