asked the Minister of Transport what representations he has received from motoring organisations, brewers, licensed victuallers, and the public about the advantages and disadvantages of providing motorists with self-test breathalyser equipment, bearing in mind proposed legislation in other EEC countries.

Self-testing is among the matters included in the consultative document on drinking and driving which we issued just before Christmas. We have given interested organisations until 31 March to respond so it is as yet too early for me to comment. I am not aware of any proposed legislation in other EEC countries.
