HC Deb 29 November 1979 vol 974 cc801-2W
Miss Wright

asked the Minister of Transport what are the arrangements to advertise available training courses for motor cyclists; if he will seek to make arrangements for course details to be given to all buyers of motor cycles; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The advertising of individual training courses is handled locally. But this Department publicises training generally by issuing, with provisional licences for motor cyclists, a leaflet recommending them to take training and telling them how to obtain details of courses. A letter has also been sent to motor cycle dealers seeking their co-operation in publicising the availability of facilities. I shall be discussing this issue further as part of my general discussions with interested organisations following the publication of the report of the advisory committee on motor cycle training.
