Not strictly true, passing places in England, Scotland and Wales are 
also intended to allow faster traffic to overtake.

It is covered by highway code rule 155 states "If you see a vehicle 
coming towards you, or the driver behind wants to overtake, pull into a 
passing place on your left, or wait opposite a passing place on your right."


It reminded me of a public information film from a while back
