HC Deb 11 November 1999 vol 337 c697W
Mr. Jenkin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if it is the Government's policy to lower the permitted blood alcohol level for driving; and if he will make a statement. [98149]

Mr. Hill

We have consulted on a package of measures to combat drinking and driving, including the possibility of lowering the permitted blood alcohol level to 50mg per 100m1. An announcement will be made as part of the forthcoming publication of our road safety strategy.
