HC Deb 27 May 1963 vol 678 cc87-8W
Mr. Walder

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that motor vehicle owners whose vehicles are used during a breakdown of public transport facilities for other than normal purposes may incur liabilities for which they may not be insured; and whether he proposes any action to safeguard their position.

Mr. Marples

Appropriate arrangements exist. These have been agreed with motor insurers, for whose co-operation I am very grateful. They would entail the acceptance of some additional risks by insurers and of others by the Government. Advice will be given to vehicle owners should circumstances require.
