To ask the Secretary of State for Transport pursuant to the answer of 22 March 2004, Official Report, column 513W, on disabled parking, what progress has been made on (a) taking forward the Disabled Persons Transport Advisory Committee's new recommendations, (b) revised guidance to local authorities, (c) research on the feasibility of a national database of Blue Badge holders and (d) consultation on secondary legislation for extending the scheme.

Work is continuing across all the areas of work I outlined in my previous answer in March.

The revised guidance that will be drawn up to explain the changes I described will be produced in draft and will form part of the public consultation that will take place on the draft regulations to extend the scheme to children under two and those with temporary disabilities. That consultation is expected later this year.

The work specification for the research on a national database is being finalised. We plan to go out to tender on that work over the summer.
