§ 9. Mr. Lagden
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works, as representing the Lord President of the 114W Council, if he is aware of United States and Swedish research into the safety aspects of motor vehicle design to minimise injuries in road accidents; and to what extent similar research is being conducted in this country.
§ Mr. H. Nicholls
Yes. Research on similar lines is being conducted in this country by the Road Research Laboratory. The police are co-operating in this research and assistance is also being given to the Laboratory by the Medical Research Council. While it is too early yet to state definite conclusions, initial results indicate that the investigation will be of great value.
