HC Deb 24 February 1998 vol 307 cc145-6W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will make a statement on his proposals to control the use of bull bars. [30989]

Ms Glenda Jackson

Given the lack of progress of European proposals to control aggressive bull bars, we issued a consultation document in October last year which sought views on a range of possible options for tackling bull bars at a national level. This consultation ended on 31 December and we are now carefully considering the responses received and analysing the arguments prior to formulating our proposals.
