asked the Secretary of State for Transport if, in the light of the Passenger Vehicles (Experimental Areas) Act 1977, he will publish guidance to all users of others' vehicles who may wish to contribute to running costs and insurance, in return for obtaining lifts to and from places of work.

The Passenger Vehicles (Experimental Areas) Act 1977 makes no change in the general law as it applies to the giving and taking of lifts. In the course of the Government programme of rural transport experiments, guidance will be offered to people affected by authorisations granted in the areas being designated under the Act as part of the programme. This material would be available at the appropriate time to local authorities for any further experiments of this kind which may be authorised under the Act.
