HC Deb 10 February 1964 vol 689 cc16-7W
Sir Richard Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the instruments now available for calculating the amount of alcohol consumed by testing samples of blood or other samples are more or less accurate than the instruments for testing breath such as the breathalyser.

Mr. Brooke

The relative accuracy of different types of instrument under field conditions is one of the matters being considered by a working party which I have appointed to advise on the problems involved in the introduction of breath-testing equipment for the purposes of the Road Traffic Act, 1962.
