Mr Morris asked the Minister for the Northern Territory, upon notice:

What action has he taken to implement the recommendations of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Road Safety to ensure that (a) the Northern Territory legislates to ban the sale and fitting of unapproved child restraints and ( b ) legislation is enacted to require the wearing of restraints by children in the Northern Territory.

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

No action has yet been taken on the matters referred to by the honourable member. Contrary to the statement contained in the Standing Committee's Report that children under the age of eight years are exempted from wearing seat belts, the Northern Territory requires all passengers in a motor vehicle to wear seat belts where fitted. These seat belts must be of an approved standard.
