HC Deb 20 March 1972 vol 833 c261W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why Her Majesty's Government have objected to the European Economic Communities' Regulation agreed on 31st January concerning the harmonisation of insurance standards and the issuing of green cards for motorists; and to what extent he estimates these proposals will increase insurance premiums to motorists in Great Britain.

Mr. Peyton

We have asked for discussions to clarify certain technical points in the Community draft directive on motor insurance. I have no present reason to suppose that premiums will be affected for the generality of British motorists.
