HC Deb 19 February 1996 vol 272 cc23-4W
Mr. Morgan

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what guidance has been agreed with the Association of British Insurers concerning the use of former ambulance trust employees on early retirement schemes to use their own cars to drive ambulant patients to out-patient clinics; and if he will make a statement. [15993]

Mr. Horam

No such guidance has been agreed. It is for local ambulance services to decide what use to make of volunteer car drivers. Ambulance services will ensure that any use of a private car is within the terms of the volunteer's motor insurance policy.
