Government set to rule out drink drive cut
The North Report, which called for the legal drink-drive limit to be cut, is set to be rejected by Philip Hammond, transport secretary, according to the Morning Advertiser.
The report, published in June 2010 by Sir Peter North, called for the legal limit to be cut almost by half, from 80mg to 50mg per 100ml of blood.
However, the proposal is set to be rejected on the grounds that it would be too damaging for rural pubs, the Morning Advertiser says.
An insider said: “The minister is very skeptical about this idea. He is far from convinced that it would be a good thing.”
A spokesperson for the DfT said it was still considering its official response to the report.
