HC Deb 15 February 1968 vol 758 c399W
59. Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why his Department has advised the police forces of the United Kingdom that they are to take advantage of the random element in the discretionary power conferred on constables under Section 2(1,b) of the Road Safety Act, 1967.

Mr. Taverne:

The Home Office circular merely described the power conferred by Parliament and drew attention to its deterrent effect.
