HC Deb 14 February 1969 vol 777 cc398-9W
Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the Minister of Transport what research his Department is currently undertaking into the relationship between drugs and driving; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Marsh

The Road Research Laboratory is examining the circumstances of accidents in which a driver was known to be taking drugs, to see to what extent, if at all, the accident can be attributed to the drugs. The present indications are that the number of such accidents is very small.
