Information on parliamentary scrutiny

This proposal was considered at the meeting of the Joint Committee on Environment, Transport, Culture and the Gaeltacht on 7th February 2012. It was agreed that this proposal warrants further scrutiny. It is therefore proposed to write to the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport to request further details as to what extent the objectives and concerns expressed in the information note have been addressed as a result of the December meeting of the Council of Ministers and in particular as to what progress if any can be made on the provision that penalties for very serious infringements must be "of the highest category applicable in the member state for infringements of road transport legislation"; on which there appears to be no agreement to date.
