To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what progress his Department has made on developing regulation to support the expanded use of low speed, low weight, autonomous last-mile delivery.
27 March 2023

Any development of regulation for these technologies would need to be balanced with the need to maintain safety and accessibility for other road users. The Government is considering research to inform possible ways forward in this area.
