HC Deb 15 February 1999 vol 325 c439W
Angela Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions how many people have been granted exemption certificates from the wearing of seatbelts in each of the last 10 years for which figures are available. [70881]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The information is not collected. Certificates of Exemption From Compulsory Seat Belt Wearing are issued by medical practitioners to those patients who, in the opinion of the medical practitioner, should be exempt on medical grounds. There is no general requirement for this information to be sent to the Department.
