HC Deb 25 February 1986 vol 92 cc498-9W
Mr. Conway

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what consideration he has given to the mandatory display of insurance discs on car windscreens; and what representations he has received to that effect.

Mr. Michael Spicer

The use of windscreens discs to provide evidence of insurance is suggested from time to time and has been most recently by the RAC. But, for the reasons I gave in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Derby, North (Mr. Knight) on 29 January, at column 520, I have yet to be convinced of the value of such a system.
