Fixed Penalties

Volume 464: debated on Monday 15 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what guidelines she has issued on the use of fixed penalty notices. (154716)

My Department issued in April 2006 “Revised Guidance on the Operation of the Fixed Penalty System for Offences in Respect of a Vehicle”. The document is available on the Home Office website at:

Overall policy in respect of fixed penalty notices is the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Justice (Mr. Straw).
