asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the total number of personal injury accident claims settled to date by the Motor Insurers' Bureau since the inception of this scheme; what is the total volume of all claims so far settled; in how many instances claims have been rejected; if he is satisfied that the scope of the agreement is adequate: and if he will make a statement.

I am satisfied that the Motor Insurers' Bureau schemes which have existed since 1946 operate effectively and provide valuable financial protection to innocent victims of road accidents. In view of the complexity and scope of the arrangements, I shall write to my hon. Friend about the detailed information for which he asks.
