§ Tim Loughton
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what resources he has devoted to enforcing new laws to combat driving while using mobile phones. 
§ Caroline Flint
The new, specific, offence of using a hand-held phone while driving is intended to provide a simple, objective offence the enforcement and prosecution of which does not depend on judgments of degree of control or carelessness. The Association of Chief Police Officers have welcomed it as a straightforward method of dealing with this dangerous behaviour. The allocation of resources is a matter for individual chief officers and the police will enforce the offence as operationally appropriate.
