Official Cars: Snow and Ice

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 24 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) how many sets of snow chains the Government Car and Despatch Agency held for use on the Government car fleet on 2 February 2009; (256912)

(2) how many ministerial cars were in use on 2 February 2009; and how many were fitted with snow chains.

On 2 February 2009 ministerial transport movements were kept to a minimum, in line with advice given by the emergency services and the Highways Agency. The Government Car and Despatch Agency (GCDA) was able to fulfil all its essential ministerial transport obligations on that day.

GCDA does not fit snow chains to its car fleet.
