Mr Morris asked the Minister for Transport, upon notice:

What action has he taken to implement the recommendation of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Road Safety that data collection and analysis be modified to more accurately relate pedestrian injuries to various vehicle designs and features in order to determine significant variations in protection performance.

Mr Nixon - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The Australian Transport Advisory Council has directed that progress towards uniformity in road traffic accident data collections be reviewed. As part of this review the Advisory Committee on Road User Performance and Traffic Codes currently has under consideration proposals to provide data which would be of direct value in assessing the contribution of various vehicle design features to injury production.
