67. Mr. Gresham Cooke
asked the Minister of Transport what action he is taking to prevent written-off motor cars being rebuilt in an unsatisfactory condition; and whether he will take steps to require the log-books of such cars to be held by either insurance companies or local authorities until an engineer has inspected the rebuilt car.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
Various measures have been taken to improve the enforcement of existing safeguards and, in so far as insurance companies are concerned, I am in touch with them on other suggestions which have been made. I have no powers, however, to impose the requirement suggested by the hon. Member.
