11.1-1.E. Withdraws Order to Drivers THE Western Division of the Road Haulage Executive has been ordered by headquarters to withdraw an instruction to drivers not to make statements to the police in the case of an accident, hut first to notify the group manager of the incident.

This action followed criticism of the instruction by Mr. Justice Finnemore, at Monmouthshire Assizes, last Friday. He described the order as a "direction to defeat the ends of justice." He hoped it would be withdrawn immediately and that drivers would disregard it, The instruction was issued by a group manager, who was presumed to be carrying out the orders of higher authority.

The Executive is now to issue standard directions to all drivers, making plain those questions which drivers must answer and those which the police have no right to a'sk.

[Directions of the kind criticized by Mr. Justice Firmer:flare are not unusual. They are intended to safeguard drivers against the possibility of prejudicing their cases hy making ill-considered statements while suffering from shock. Insurance companies insist that no driver shall admit liability for an accident.)


ASPECIAL insurance policy for ,passengers' luggage carried on coaches is now being issued by the insurance panel of• the Passenger Vehicle Operators' Association. It supplements the cover already offered for personal accident and baggage.
