HC Deb 19 June 1964 vol 696 cc229-30W
Mr. Cleaver

asked the Minister of Transport what is his policy with regard to motor manufacturers making speed tests on the M.1.

Mr. Marples

I welcome the assurances, given to me earlier this week by the President of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, that the manufacturers will not in future use public roads for high-speed competition tests of racing cars and that the high-speed testing of production cars should continue to be carried out at the specially-designed track of the Motor Industry Research Association.
