Roads: Safety

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport pursuant to the written ministerial statement of 3 December 2009, Official Report, columns 136-38WS, on road safety, when he plans to publish his Department's response to its consultation on road safety entitled “A Safer Way”. (309451)

On 3 December 2009, we announced that an independent expert, Sir Peter North, had been appointed to examine the possible changes to the law on drink and drug driving.

The timing of the new road safety strategy will depend on the outcome of Sir Peter North's report, which will inform the final contents of the strategy. We therefore expect to publish our response to the “A Safer Way” road safety consultation alongside the new road safety strategy.
