asked the Home Secretary whether the attention of the police was drawn to an exceptionally flagrant case of furious driving of a car bearing a general identification mark in Whitehall on the afternoon of the 19th October; and what steps have been taken to deal with the offender?

In the absence of further particulars, the case referred to in the question cannot be identified with certainty, but I have ascertained that a complaint was made to the police by two persons of a case of dangerous driving at the date and place referred to. No police officer witnessed the incident, but the police traced the owner of the car, and offered assistance to the complainants to prosecute the driver. They declined to appear, however, and no other evidence being available, it was impossible to take any proceedings.
