To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what discussions he has had with his counterpart in the Scottish Government on the results of that government's lowering of drink-drive limits; and if he will make a statement.
8 February 2016
I am intending to discuss with the Scottish Minister about the experience of the lower limit in Scotland and about the timescales to get access to robust evidence of the road safety impact. It is important to base our decisions on evidence and the Scottish experience will be crucial to that before we consider any possible changes to the limits in England and Wales. This Government’s current position however remains to focus resources on enforcing against the most serious offenders.
