Volume 448: debated on Tuesday 4 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate she has made of the (a) annual savings and (b) total saving to date to the national health service by (i) front and (ii) rear seat belt wearing being made compulsory; and if she will make a statement. (81281)

The Government do not have estimates on the savings to the national health service due to wearing of front and rear seat belts. Over 2,000 road fatalities are, however, estimated to be prevented every year by the use of seat belts.
