Transport (Seating)

Volume 450: debated on Wednesday 11 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what research his Department has undertaken on the extent to which people of above-average height have adequate seating on (a) trains, (b) aeroplanes and (c) buses. (91651)

The Department for Transport has undertaken no specific research on the extent to which people of above-average height have adequate seating on trains, aeroplanes and buses.

However, a range of regulations covering these modes set minimum requirements for seat spacing, which should enable the majority of passengers to travel safely and in reasonable comfort.
