HC Deb 30 March 2004 vol 419 c1324W
Mr. Grogan

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to require motorists to display(a) proof of insurance and (b) a licence alongside their tax discs.[163513]

Mr. Jamieson

The Government are determined to tackle the menace of uninsured driving. We have commissioned Professor David Greenaway to conduct an independent review of the motor insurance industry with special reference to uninsured driving. The report is due to be delivered to Ministers next month and the recommendations for reducing the level of uninsured driving will be examined in detail. Although not ruling out the display of insurance discs we would not wish to pre-empt the findings of the review and intend to await the outcome before deciding on the next steps.
