HC Deb 22 July 1983 vol 46 c253W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what information he has as to the amount spent annually by the motor cycle industry on research into and on the promotion of road safety for motor cyclists.

Mrs. Chalker

I understand that in 1982–83 the motor cycle industry contributed £556,200 to the British Motor Cycle Safety Foundation. I have no detailed information as to how much the motor cycle manufacturers themselves have spent on safety research.
