Maria Eagle raised the issue in Parliament following a campaign by the mother of teenage crash victim Michael Molloy

John Hayes made the pledge under questioning from Labour MP for Garston and Halewood Maria Eagle, who has tabled draft legislation after the death of her constituent Michael Molloy.

The 18-year-old was killed in 2012 after a coach tyre more than 19 years old exploded on the A3 in Surrey while returning from a music festival.

Ms Eagle has urged action to take tyres that are more than 10 years old off the UK's roads.

She asked Mr Hayes whether the Conservatives would oppose her proposed legislation.

I think there's a need for more research... my department will engage in further research with the experts in the industry and others to establish exactly the effect of the age of tyres on safety and security."
