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 the Bureau of Road Safety institute procedures for the thorough testing of vehicles to ensure satisfactory compliance with Australian Design Rules.

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

By agreement between the Commonwealth and the States the Australian Motor Vehicle Certification Board has the responsibility of establishing the compliance of new vehicles with the Australian Design Rules. The evidence of compliance which manufacturers are required to submit include the results of tests conducted in either approved laboratories or laboratories which would satisfy the requirements for approval.
