HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 c182W
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.
