HC Deb 23 July 1985 vol 83 c447W
Mr. Murphy

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will introduce legislation to make proof of ownership of a car registration necessary before a number plate is produced.

Mr. Michael Spicer

Such legislation would be very difficult to enforce in present circumstances. However my Department is reviewing with the British Standards Institute the possible inclusion of number plates in a kite mark scheme, as a basis for tightening control of the sale of plates.
