To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the report by the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety Roads Policing and its contribution to road safety, published on 4 June; and what consideration they have given to the reasons why road deaths in the UK have not declined since 2010.

The PACTS report was an evaluation of academic work to establish if enforcement had an impact on road casualty numbers.

In the Refreshed Road Safety Statement in July 2019 we announced the most comprehensive review of roads policing and this reflects our commitment to continuing to reduce the numbers of people killed and seriously injured on our roads.

We will also shortly be launching a Call for Evidence to help us further investigate the link between enforcement, collisions, congestion and crime – helping make our roads safer for everyone.
