§ 87. Sir Clive Bossom
asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many Royal Air Force drivers are carrying out alcohol breath tests; what spirits are being issued; and what type and make of breathmeters are being used.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
No. R.A.F. drivers are carrying out alcohol breath tests and no spirits are being issued for this purpose. The R.A.F. provost staff are, however, examining breath analysis equipment simply to familiarise themselves with this type of device and to make a preliminary appraisal of the possible police drills for using it in the circumstances envisaged in the Road Safety Bill.
