HC Deb 20 March 1967 vol 743 c204W
Mr. Barnes

asked the Minister of Transport whether arrangements for the registration books of vehicles written off by insurance companies to be appropriately marked have been completed; and when they will be introduced.

Mrs. Castle

Motor insurers generally, for whose co-operation I am most grateful, have agreed that, as from 1st May, when a total loss payment is made on a seriously damaged vehicle, the registration book will be sent to the appropriate local taxation officer. The book will then be endorsed "Seriously damaged vehicle—insurance total loss payment".
