§ Mr. Waller
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will show estimated expenditure in 1985–86 and planned expenditure in 1986–87 by local authorities, London Regional Transport and public transport joint boards on (a) revenue support, (b) concessionary fares, (c) public transport investment and (d) public transport administration.
§ Mr. Greg Knight
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he has any plans to require motorists to display insurance and Ministry of Transport test certificates on vehicle windscreens; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Spicer
A windscreen display would not give conclusive evidence of insurance—where, for example, policy conditions were breached. It would be open to abuse and, for vehicle testing purposes, I would have to be convinced that instituting such a system would be cost-effective.
