Written answers (Question to Transport)

I have launched a public consultation on the use of e-scooters and other forms of personal powered transporters. This consultation will run from 1st September 2019 to 1st November 2019 inclusive. The consultation document is available on my Department's website.

I will not be making any decisions on legislating or regulating the use of personal powered transporters during the consultation period and their use on public roads and in public places will remain illegal.
