asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many private vehicles and how many commercial vehicles he estimates are currently in use unlicensed.

In the reply I gave to my hon. and learned Friend on 25th April—[Vol. 930, c. 215–16]—I said that no figures are available to distinguish private from business use of licensed motor vehicles. This is also the case with unlicensed ones. But the special survey to which I referred in a further reply to my hon. and learned Friend on the same day—[Vol. 930, c. 216]—should provide a reliable estimate of the numbers of unlicensed private cars and goods vehicles in use.
