HC Deb 02 August 1963 vol 682 cc210-1W
Mr. Thorpe

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make the fitting of suppressors compulsory for all new cars.

Mr. Marples

The Wireless Telegraphy (Control of Interference from Ignition Apparatus) Regulations, 1952, made by my right hon. Friend the Postmaster-General already require motor vehicles manufactured in or imported into this country since July, 1953, to be fitted with suppressors.
