Is the hon. Gentleman aware that there have been several instances of disabled persons being stranded through a mechanical failure of their vehicle, especially late at night when they have been returning alone from social functions? Is he aware that British engineering brains are the best in the world and, given a sufficient market, could design a car which would do all that we want? Any increase in cost would be more than met by the pleasure that having company would give to disabled persons.
