§ Mr. Coombs
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the implications of the use of breath check alcohol test computers, by private individuals, for road safety.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
It is open to individuals to use such self-test equipment as they wish. The report of the Blennerhassett committee pointed out limitations of self-testing equipment, particularly that alcohol will be underestimated if a test is carried out before the alcohol consumed has been absorbed.
