HC Deb 14 December 1966 vol 738 cc89-90W
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.
