Representations By The Motor Cycle Action Group

EDM number 1686 in 1992-93, proposed by Bob Cryer on 24/03/1993.

That this House congratulates the Motorcycle Action Group on its lobby of Parliament on 24th March and the well presented case that there is no link between motor-cycle accidents and brake horsepower engine output; notes that 70 per cent. of motor-cycle accidents take place at under 30 m.p.h. in urban areas; rejects the arbitrary limit of 100 b.h.p. output and 'tamper-free' engine construction proposed by the EEC Commission which would include owner maintenance, impose an exorbitant increase in costs and penalise the already limited production of British motor-cycles thus placing jobs in jeopardy; notes the B.M.W. already has in hand conformity with these rules; believes that the Commission is working not in the interests of motor-cycle safety but of German industry; and calls upon the Government to reject the proposals.

This motion has been signed by a total of 67 MPs.
