HC Deb 04 July 1978 vol 953 c110W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what measures he is taking to encourage the public to use seat belts in cars.

Mr. William Rodgers

A national publicity campaign to inform people of the benefits of seat belts and to encourage drivers and front seat passengers to wear them is being carried on television, in the Press and on posters. The campaign will cost £1,100,000 and will last from May until October. I take every other opportunity to emphasise that to wear a seat belt is common sense and saves lives.
