To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what studies have been carried out on the risks associated with (a) motorised wheelchairs and (b) other pavement vehicles; what results were shown for Class 3 vehicles; and what representations have been made to his Department on this issue. (127700)

The Department has published a review of these vehicles, including research into the number of related incidents categorised by severity. The findings are available on the Department’s website. We are currently reviewing this evidence in conjunction with the representations received on general use of such vehicles, which have included some on safe usage.
