§ Mr. Kershaw
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what study is being made of the legal implications of removing control of a motor car from the driver by the operation of electronic devices connected with the brakes or the steering.
§ Dr. Gilbert
Development work towards automatic brake application and steering control in cars is not at present thought likely to lead to worthwhile results. Accordingly, no consideration is being given to the legal implications of installing and using any such device.
