HC Deb 26 July 1979 vol 971 c470W
Mr. Dormand

asked the Minister of Transport if he will introduce legislation to make it compulsory to display on a vehicle a certificate stating that the necessary insurance has been paid; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

My right hon. Friend would not at present wish to impose this obligation. Insurance certificates are checked when licences are renewed and the police have powers to require drivers to produce them at any time.
