Sir George sponsored a reception for Britax in the House of Commons, to enable them to explain to fellow MP's and the country's motoring press two important changes in child protection.

"As of yesterday, every new car sold will have ISOFIX 2000 fitments in the rear seat. This will enable child seats to be easily slotted in, avoiding the time-consuming wrestling with straps every parent dreads - and ensuring that the seat is safely secured.

"The second change, coming in later in the year as an EU Directive, will ensure that children up to the age of 11 are safely seated in the car; putting an adult strap round them can be very dangerous."

Britax has campaigned for improved safety legislation for many years, and welcomed the opportunity to explain to a wider public these important innovations.

Andrew Stafford, Chief Executive of Britax, based in Andover gave a slide presentation with further details of the work the company has been doing.

Here's a leaflet explaining the legislative changes.
