HC Deb 23 November 1966 vol 736 cc313-4W
Mr. Gwilym Roberts

asked the Minister of Transport what evidence she has received of the effect on the incidence of accidents of television advertising, which glorifies excessive speed and other forms of dangerous driving.

Mr. John Morris

There is no evidence at present, but it seems likely that television advertising can have both good and bad effects on driving behaviour. Advertising which glorifies speed or any other form of dangerous driving must be wrong because, if it has any effects, these must be harmful.
