§ 66. Mr. Keeling
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has any further statement to make regarding the Transport Advisory Council's Report on accidents to cyclists?
§ The Minister of Transport (Mr. Burgin)
As I have already indicated in the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend on 29th June, the important recommendations in this report are receiving my full and careful consideration. I would remind my hon. Friend, however, that the more important of these recommendations would involve legislation, which in any event could not be introduced before next year, and in the meanwhile, I hope to have 3103 the advantage of studying the Report of the Select Committee on the prevention of Road Accidents, which is sitting in another place, and which in the course of its investigation is examining the same question. I may add that I have agreed to receive a deputation from the National Committee on Cycling on the subject.
When my right hon. Friend looks into the report on road accidents, will he also look into the report of the committee of the British Medical Association referring to alcohol in road accidents?
