§ 34. Mr. Leavey
asked the Minister of Transport to what extent road casualties and accidents are attributable to persons involved in them during the first year after they have passed the test; and whether he will take steps to cause such persons to carry some distinguishing sign on all vehicles driven by them.
§ Mr. Marples
The information asked for in the first part of the Question is not available. I do not believe that a special sign to distinguish newly qualified drivers would contribute to road safety; and it might detract from the significance of the L plate.
