HC Deb 02 March 1966 vol 725 cc304-5W
82. Mr. Oakes

asked the Minister of Transport if she will seek power to enforce the compulsory use of a standard policy of minimum third party motor insurance written in language which is intelligible to the layman.

Mr. John Morris

My hon. Friend's suggestion will be borne in mind, but motor insurance policies, being contracts, are necessarily written in legal terms and the requirements of policy holders may vary. Third parties who may suffer as the result of the negligence of the driver of a motor vehicle are protected by provisions of the Road Traffic Act, 1960, and the Agreement made by my right hon. Friend's predecessor in 1946 with the Motor Insurers' Bureau.
