HC Deb 04 March 1988 vol 128 cc739-40W
Mr. David Shaw

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he proposes to consult on draft regulations to introduce a dual speed invalid carriage.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

The Department of Transport has today issued a consultation document. The vehicle we hope to introduce is an additional class of "invalid carriage" that would be able to travel at a speed of up to 8 mph on the carriageway, with the restriction remaining at 4 mph on the footway. Copies of the consultation document are available from:

  • The Disability Unit
  • Department of Transport
  • Room S10/21
  • 2 Marsham Street
  • SW1P 3EB
