HC Deb 03 February 1986 vol 91 c43W
34. Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will seek powers to require motorists to display valid insurance stickers on their vehicles.

Mr. Michael Spicer

No. An insurance sticker would not provide conclusive evidence of insurance, where for example policy conditions were breached, and, because motor insurance generally relates to the driver rather than the vehicle, such a system would be open to widespread abuse.
