HC Deb 09 May 1986 vol 97 cc277-8W
Mr. Roger King

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will discuss with the Royal Automobile Club the safety and conduct of off road car rallying; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

Stringent rules governing safety and conduct are imposed by the Royal Automobile Club Motor Sports Association Ltd. when authorising rallies under the provisions of the Road Traffic Act 1972. The safety record for such events in the United Kingdom is good. There are no plans at present to open discussions.
