Mr. Larkin Mr. Larkin
Mr. Larkin asked the Minister for Local Government whether in view of the increasing number and gravity of road accidents in which intoxicating liquor appeared to be a main or contributory factor, he will consider the necessity of introducing proposals for legislation to amend the law so as to ensure that drivers of motor vehicles found guilty of driving whilst under the influence of drink will be subject to more severe penalties, with automatic suspension of their driving licences for defined periods or for life.
Parliamentary Secretary to Minister for Local Government (Mr. Corish) Brendan Corish
Parliamentary Secretary to Minister for Local Government (Mr. Corish): Yes, I am considering proposals on this matter in conjunction with certain projected amendments of the Road Traffic Act, 1933.
