Friend for those figures, which I am sure he will realise bear out the fact that this iniquitous rule bears most hardly on areas of low earnings, such as Norfolk.

This is, of course, slightly different...

Road Safety Bill (18 Jun 1965)

Mr Derek Page: That may be true but I think that the commercial traveller does it because he thinks that the client expects it.

Road Safety Bill (18 Jun 1965)

Mr Derek Page: We all know what convoluted minds commercial travellers are liable to develop and they always manage to say something to please the other man almost before he thinks about it.
