Lord Howie of Troon

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Which department is responsible for consulting stakeholders on draft proposals from the European Commission for a directive on safety in vehicle tunnels; and what steps have been taken to consult fire safety interests. [HL700]

Lord Macdonald of Tradeston

A draft directive on road tunnel safety is expected to be presented by the European Commission in the near future. Once the text is available the Department for Transport will consult widely with interested organisations including the Fire Safety Advisory Board.
