HC Deb 05 November 1980 vol 991 c591W
9. Mr. Neale

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make a statement on his consultations on a new system to replace the totting-up procedure for traffic offences.

Mr. Fowler

I intend to introduce legislation at the earliest opportunity to replace the present totting-up system with a system based on points. This change has been recommended by the review body which the Government set up last year and has been supported by the motoring organisations and many others. I believe it will be generally welcomed as a significant reform of our motoring laws in line with the commitment I made in opposition.
