Volume 684: debated on Monday 17 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many reports the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) has received of lorry engine control units being adversely affected by powerful radio signals; and what tests VOSA has undertaken to check such reports of electromagnetic interference from roadside radio signals.[HL6868]

Since the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) was formed on 1 April 2003, there have been no reports of lorry engine control units being adversely affected by powerful radio signals. VOSA has not conducted any tests to check whether a lorry engine control unit can be affected by electromagnetic interference from roadside radio signals.
