Railways and Transport Safety Bill — New Clause 2 — Prescribed limits — 31 Mar 2003 at 20:00

Patrick McLoughlin MP, West Derbyshire did not vote.

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

After a discussion about the death of so many people on our roads due to snow and ice, it is appropriate to turn to another cause of death on our roads: drink-driving. I preface my remarks by making recognition of the work carried out by Governments past and present, by Departments, local authorities, the police and the media-through publicity-to reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries caused by drink-driving. It would be wrong not to acknowledge the work that is already being done.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-

The House divided: Ayes 32, Noes 282.
