HC Deb 08 May 1968 vol 764 c73W
41. Mr. Pardoe

asked the Minister of Transport if he will initiate discussions with the manufacturers of seat belts, with a view to providing standardisation of belt fasteners.

Mr. Bob Brown

The essential requirements for buckles on seat belts are already specified in the British Standard for Seat Belt Assemblies. Complete standardisation would be undesirable since it would be likely to result in a compromise design.
