Vol. 375 No. 8

Written Answers. - Road Traffic (Amendment) Act, 1978.


asked the Minister for the Environment the plans, if any, he has to amend section 23 of the Road Traffic (Amendment) Act, 1978 in view of the decision of the Supreme Court in 1980; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I propose to include an appropriate amending provision in the next general Road Traffic Bill to meet the point at issue. The timing of the Bill will depend on a number of factors, including the speed with which a number of complex issues can be resolved and its relative priority in the legislative programme. Preparatory work on the Bill is proceeding as quickly as possible.
