HC Deb 07 March 2000 vol 345 c601W
Mr. Jenkin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what measures he will take to improve the safety of drivers who make journeys by motor vehicles on behalf of their employers. [113528]

Mr. Hill

Measures to improve work-related road safety are set out in the Government's road safety strategy—"Tomorrow's roads: safer for everyone", published on 1 March.

We want to ensure that worker/drivers and vulnerable road users are not exposed to unnecessary risks. An inter-agency task group is therefore being established under an independent chair—Richard Dykes, Group Managing Director of the Post Office. The group will make recommendations for action on strategies for improving the management of work-related road safety.
