HC Deb 27 February 1963 vol 672 c163W
35. Mr. Bence

asked the Minister of Transport what steps he proposes to take to reduce personal injury in road accidents from broken glass.

Vice-Admiral Hughes Hallett

This matter is already controlled by the Motor Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations. These require all motor vehicles to have safety glass for the windscreen and other front facing windows, and those registered after 1958 to have it for all windows of passenger vehicles and for windows beside the driver in goods vehicles.

81. Mr. Carmichael

asked the Minister of Transport if he will include in his published statistics the make and type of vehicle involved in road accidents.

Mr. Marples

No. I am not satisfied that the publication of this information would serve any useful purpose.
