§ 3. Mr. Stevens
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what measures he is taking to improve road safety.
§ Mr. McLoughlin
A wide range of measures to improve road safety have been taken under the umbrella of our "Safety on the Move" campaign. Britain has a good record on road safety. An area of great concern is that of child safety—especially child pedestrians, where there is particular scope for improvement. A sustained programme of measures on child safety was launched in May including proposals to enable local authorities to make residential streets safer. We will be launching a further phase of this campaign concentrating on child pedestrian safety shortly.
