Transport Safety

Volume 449: debated on Monday 24 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent discussions he has had with the Parliamentary Advisory Committee on Transportation Safety; what note was kept of each meeting; and if he will make a statement. (81245)

The Secretary of State has not met the Parliamentary Advisory Committee on Transport Safety (PACTS). The Minister of State gave the ministerial response to a PACTS Westminster lecture in December last year and addressed a joint reception organised by my hon. Friend the Member for Northampton, North (Ms Keeble) and PACTS on 5 July. He also met with my hon. Friend the Member for Stafford (Mr. Kidney) who was accompanied by the executive director of PACTS in May, to discuss the Road Safety Bill.

A note of that meeting is kept by the Department.
