HC Deb 19 April 1967 vol 745 c92W
61. Mr. Longden

asked the Minister of Transport if she will introduce amending legislation to safeguard the position of a driver who, because he feels that it would be unsafe for him to continue driving, pulls up in such a place as will not offend against any regulations or cause any obstruction.

Mr. John Morris

My right hon. Friend has done so. Under the Road Safety Bill which has had its Third Reading in this House, a person in charge of a car with more than the prescribed concentration of alcohol in his blood will not be committing an offence, if he can show that the circumstances were such that there was no likelihood of his driving so long as there was any probability of him having alcohol in his blood in excess of the prescribed limit.
