§ Mr. Stephen Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will amend the Public Service Vehicles (Carrying Capacity) Regulations 1983 so as to require that on public service vehicles no children over five years of age will be permitted to sit three to a seat whose normal capacity is two persons.
§ Mrs. Chalker
No. A seat designed for two adults can safely be used by three children, and this has always been permitted under PSV (Carrying Capacity) Regulations.
