Mr. Peter Bottomley

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his answer of 30 January,Official Report, column 483, how he proposes to judge the effect of the experiment intended to reduce risk and to cut casualties by banning coaches in the right-hand lane of carriageways with more than two lanes.

Mr. Norris
