§ Mr. Nigel Evans
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what measures are being taken to reduce the number of children killed and injured outside schools by motorists; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Carlisle
The Department has introduced a wide range of engineering, educational and publicity measures to reduce the number of children who are killed or injured on the roads. These were outlined in our 1990 policy document "Children and Roads: A Safer Way". In particular trials are being conducted of variable speed limits outside schools on busy trunk roads.
