To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his answer of 10 June 2002,Official Report, column 770W, on vehicle registration numbers, whether he intends to extend the vehicle registration number facility to cater for third parties through a regulatory reform order; and if he will make a statement.

We are keen to introduce third party entitlement at the earliest opportunity. We are looking for a suitable legislative slot. The regulatory reform procedure is being considered along with other options.
