HC Deb 26 February 1987 vol 111 c343W
Mr. Best

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to combat the incidence of drink driving offences other than the annual advertising campaign; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

The enforcement of the law on drinking and driving is a matter for the police. They appreciate the importance of effective enforcement throughout the year. The Home Office maintains regular contact with the Department of Transport about publicity and other preventive measures which complement police enforcement and is represented on the road traffic law review chaired by Dr. Peter North which is examining, inter alia, various aspects of the law relating to drinking and driving.
