HC Deb 12 May 1983 vol 42 cc436-7W
Dr. M. S. Miller

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will set out in the Official Report the total expenditure for publicity on the drink and drive campaigns undertaken by his Department for each of the following financial years; 1979–80, 1980–81, 1981–82 and 1982–83; how much has been spent to date in the financial year 1983–84 and how much is budgeted for the current year; what was the total expenditure by his Department for each of the years concerned; and what percentage the publicity expenditure on the drink and drive campaigns represented of that total expenditure.

Mrs. Chalker

The information requested on road safety expenditure is as follows:

The allocation for anti-drink/drive publicity in 1983–84 is £1,600,000.
The total road safety publicity budget for 1983–84 is £5,583,700.
†Percentage would be meaningless, as concentration of early summer months spend is on child pedestrian safety.
