HC Deb 31 July 1963 vol 682 c71W
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.
