§ 58. Mr. Bessell
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will introduce legislation to amend Section 213 of the Road Traffic Act, 1960, so as to abolish the emergency treatment fee payable by the driver of a motor vehicle, in view of the fact that payment now has to be made irrespective of any proved liability for negligence.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
This provision has existed in its present form since 1934. The case for its withdrawal will be considered when a suitable legislative opportunity arises. Payments made under the provision are covered by compulsory motor insurance.
