Volume 501: debated on Thursday 26 November 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport when he plans to implement the recommendations made by the review of class (a) two and (b) three powered wheelchairs and powered scooters. (300702)

The Department for Transport expects to take forward the review's principal recommendations in the form of a public consultation in 2010. The issues we propose to consult on include future fitness to drive, insurance, registration and the training requirements for Class 2 and Class 3 mobility vehicle users.

The Government's aim will continue to be to balance the mobility needs of scooter users with the safety needs of pedestrians and other road users.
