§ Mr. Fry
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what action he has taken to strengthen the vehicle inspectorate since the enactment of the Transport Act 1985; and whether the Act has led to any increase in the need for corrective action by the inspectorate.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
This year the vehicle inspectorate will do an extra 13 per cent. more work on public service vehicles, some of which will be corrective action.
