HC Deb 18 November 2003 vol 413 c736W
Mr. Chope

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what his estimate is of how many vehicles which have(a) lightly tinted and (b) heavily tinted windows do not comply with the proposed amendments to Regulation 32 of the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations. [138736]

Mr. Jamieson

A vehicle with windows which has light transmittance values less than the prescribed minima in Regulation 32 is unlawful irrespective of whether it might subjectively be described as having either 'light' or 'heavy' tints. Information on the number of vehicles which do not comply with the regulation is not held.
