David Ward – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by David Ward on 2015-01-14.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what terms of reference have been set for his Department’s research project on the effect of telematics on young drivers; and when he plans to publish the outcomes of each of that project’s phases.

Mr Robert Goodwill

The Department has just awarded a research contract for a project which is intended to demonstrate the road safety benefits which could arise as a result of novice drivers using telematics products.

A description of the Department’s research requirement has been placed in Libraries of both Houses.

We expect phase one to be completed in April 2015. The timing of phase two will be dependent on the first phase.
