Mr. Gwilym Roberts
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will take steps to reduce the number of people driving uninsured vehicles by making the provision of third party car insurance a Government function; if he will make provision to enable motorists to obtain third party insurance at the same time as they tax their vehicles; and if he will make a statement.
Mr. Kenneth Clarke
No. This is not a field for Government. Apart from other objections, there is no reason to suppose that the hon. Member's proposal would even have the effect described.
