HC Deb 25 November 1964 vol 702 cc185-6W
58. Mr. Orbach

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the seasonal rise in car accidents during the Christmas period, he will make an official appeal to the organisers of office and other parties about to take place to ban people who would be driving away from such functions.

Mr. Tom Fraser

Letters have been sent to local authorities, employers' organisations, and the Trade Union Congress seeking their co-operation in the drink-and-driving campaign and drawing attention to the need for particular care with office parties in the two days before the holiday The campaign is designed to bring home to the public the dangers of driving after drinking. I will take an opportunity of making a further appeal nearer Christmas.
