HC Deb 14 July 1965 vol 716 c74W
Mr. Alan Williams

asked the Minister of Transport if he will take steps to make compulsory the fitting of safety belts in self-drive hire cars.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The case for dealing with self-drive hire cars in isolation is not strong. My intention is, once the regulations requiring all suitable new vehicles to be equipped with prescribed anchorage points are made, to have consultations with the interested parties about the compulsory fitting of safety belts in all new vehicles so equipped.
