HC Deb 19 January 1996 vol 269 cc807-8W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) what plans he has to introduce psychological counselling for road rage; and if he will make a statement; [9917]

(2) what proposals he has to combat road rage by psychological counselling. [9918]

Mr. Norris

The courts may impose a probation or combination order on an offender, who is supervised by a probation officer required to assess the offender's motivations, pattern of offending and relevant problems and devise a supervision programme designed to address them. This can include mandatory or voluntary counselling and treatment where the offender has reacted inappropriately to a situation on the road. Consideration is being given to whether anything further needs to be done.
