Roads: Safety

Volume 458: debated on Wednesday 14 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what recent discussions he has had with the Audit Commission on the Commission’s recent report, Changing Lanes, targeting employers in order to deliver road safety messages to those who drive at work. (126677)

I have not discussed ‘Changing Lanes’ with the Audit Commission. However, the Chair of the Health and Safety Commission has written to the chief executive of the Audit Commission to endorse the report’s emphasis on education, training and publicity, and also to describe how the Health and Safety Executive has been working with the Department for Transport to raise awareness of employers’ responsibility for work-related road safety.
