Motor Vehicles: Safety

Volume 490: debated on Monday 23 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many stretch limousines were checked by Vehicle and Operator Services Agency to ensure compliance with construction requirements in 2008; and what percentage were deemed to be compliant. (264936)

[holding answer 20 March 2009]: The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) has only recently introduced the capacity to record a specific vehicle type as a limousine. Previously vehicles were classed as either cars or Public Service Vehicles (PSV)s.

VOSA's records show that 58 checks were carried out on limousines in 2008. It is not possible to determine levels of compliance.
