Officials regularly meet with their counterparts in Northern Ireland and we will of course be interested in any evidence produced by the Northern Ireland Assembly on the impact that the changes to the drink driving limit has on road safety in Northern Ireland. There are though no current plans to alter the drink driving limit in England and Wales.
