§ Mr. Sheerman
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will respond to the recommendations made by the independent assessors commissioned by his Department in their report of the effects of compulsory seat belt wearing; and if he intends to publish a supplementary report.
§ Mrs. Chalker
I accept the recommendations. Durbin and Harvey's further study confirms the analyses contained in the main study report. I have placed copies of our response to the recommedations and the results of the supplementary study in the Library.
