HC Deb 18 May 2004 vol 421 c854W
David Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether changes to the(a) definition and (b) seriousness of due care in motoring offences are included in the existing proposals to reform the criminal justice system. [172789]

Caroline Flint

The Government are reviewing the existing framework of the criminal law concerning bad driving, particularly where death or injury results, in order to ensure that appropriate offences and penalties are put in place. This includes the offence of driving without due care and attention. We hope to publish a consultation paper in the near future detailing the options for change.
