§ Mr. Bowis
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what measures he proposes to take to respond to concerns about the effects of the new serious driving offences in the Road Traffic Bill on the organisation of motor sports.
§ Mr. Chope
I am very much aware of the importance of the motor sports industry nationally and of the need to ensure that sporting events which take place off the road are not jeopardised by the risk that the manner of driving might be judged by criteria more appropriate to driving on the public highway. I shall today be tabling amendments to deal with this point at the Report stage of the Road Traffic Bill.
