Motion text

That this House notes with deep regret the recent tragic death of 12 year old Amy Houston in a road traffic accident; notes that the driver of the vehicle had already been twice banned from driving; believes that the sentence of four months imprisonment which he received was woefully inadequate; believes that there should be a separate offence of causing death with a vehicle whilst banned from driving, and that such an offence should carry with it a serious custodial sentence; and calls on Her Majesty's Government to bring forward proposals to amend the law as a matter of urgency.
