§ Mr. Galbraith
asked the Minister of Transport how many drivers there are in the age groups 17 to 25, 25 to 35, 35 to 45, 45 to 55, 55 to 65, 65 to 75, and over 75; and how many in each group were involved in road accidents in each of the last five years.
§ Mr. John Morris
The number of drivers of each age is not recorded, nor is the number of road accidents they were involved in. However, estimates based on sample information collected on the age of licence holders in 1961 and 1964 are given in the following table, together with casualty data for corresponding age-groups:
conduct of negotiations in relation to pay agreements during the standstill period.
§ Mr. Diamond
The following guidance has been given to Departments in relation to civil servantsThe White Paper makes it clear that it is not intended that negotiations on pay should be barred for the rest of 1966. But for the time being, while Departments may continue discussions with Staff Associations/Trade Unions to establish facts, they should not make any further pay offers or reach agreements (even on the basis of offers already authorised by the Treasury). Further guidance on the conduct of negotiations during the standstill period will be issued as soon as practicable.
I understand that Ministry of Housing and Local Government Circular No. 44/66 containing guidance issued to local authorities is already available in the Library.
