Question:

95 Mr. McCormack asked the Minister for Finance if there is a regulation regarding the size of number plates to be displayed on motorcycles; the regulations governing this; and if there are plans to introduce regulations governing the size of number plates on motorcycles. [19232/03]

I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that the format, dimensions and technical specifications for the registration plates which are required to be displayed on all motor vehicles, including motorcycles, are set out in the Vehicle Registration and Taxation Regulations 1992, SI 318 of 1992, as amended by SI 432 of 1999.

I have no plans to review these requirements with particular reference to motorcycles.
