When the Review of Drink and Drug Driving Law was established last December, it was agreed that I would provide initial advice to the Rt. Hon. Lord Adonis, the then Secretary of State, by 31st March 2010. I did this, as requested, providing him with my provisional conclusions on 29th March. It was made clear at the time that, should the announcement of the election intervene prior to completion of the Report, I would submit this to the Secretary of State after the election. I submitted my completed Report to the new Secretary of State, the Rt. Hon. Philip Hammond, on 21 May.
Preparation of the Report for publication has now been completed. It therefore gives me great pleasure to publish the Report of the Review of Drink and Drug Driving Law.
I am very grateful to those who provided oral and written evidence to the Review. I would like to thank those who gave their time to meet me and to those who gave their time and effort to provide me with written evidence.
