Shona McIsaac: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many fixed penalty notices were issued for (a) carrying a child under 14 years without a seatbelt (i) in the front and (ii) in the rear seat, (b) driving a car with an unrestrained child under 12 years and (c) failure to wear a seatbelt in the Humberside police area in each of the past five years. 
Paul Goggins: Available information held centrally on police action taken for motoring seat belt offences, does not distinguish between the offence of driving/riding in a motor vehicle not wearing a seat belt and that of driving a motor vehicle with a child not wearing seat belt. Nor does it distinguish between individual circumstances that may have existed at the time each offence was committed.

In March 2000, the Government launched the road safety strategy, Tomorrow's roadssafer for everyone", establishing new long-term 10 year casualty reduction targets to be achieved by the end of 2010. These are:
The Department for Transport has a road safety public service agreement (PSA) target to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured and children killed or seriously injured as outlined above. In 2002 the PSA target was strengthened to include a commitment to
The first review of the road safety strategy was published in April 2004 and concluded that good progress was being made. It highlighted issues of particular concern, such as the levelling out of road deaths and the potential under reporting of slight casualties. The Department for Transport has

commissioned research to investigate both of these issues. The second review of the strategy will commence in spring 2006.
There is continued good progress towards our targets. Full 2004 data (published 29 September 2005) show KSI casualties 28 per cent. down on the 199498 baseline, and child KSIs down 43 per cent. 2004 saw the biggest annual drop (8 per cent.) in both deaths and serious injuries since the road safety strategy was launched. Provisional data for Q2 2005 show a continuing decline in KSIs, down 33 per cent. on baseline.

We remain committed to achieving our PSA targets of a 40 per cent. reduction in the overall number of people killed or seriously injured compared with the 199498 baseline by 2010; and our target of reducing the number of children aged 015 killed or seriously injured to 50 per cent. of the 199498 baseline by 2010. In 2004 all killed and seriously injured casualties were 28 per cent. below the baseline and such child casualties were 43 per cent. below the baseline.
