Classic kids

My three daughters grew up in my 1948 MG TC or 1966 Sunbeam Alpine. They travelled in the front passenger seat, or behind the seats. Now I am a grandfather but how do modern laws effect children travelling in classic cars? The MG has only two seats and no seat belts. The Alpine has early seat belts for the front seats and an occasional rear seat squab without seat belts? Your advice please as grandson Max, 8, keeps asking for a ride?
