asked the Secretary of State for Transport (1) how many accidents occurred on roads in the Leek parliamentary constituency in each of the past three years;(2) how many accidents occurred on the A52 in the Leek parliamentary constituency in each of the past three years.
Statistics of road accidents in local areas are a matter for the local authorities concerned, and my Department supplies figures only in relation to trunk roads, or motorways, for which it is responsible. Only a small part of the A52 within the Leek parliamentary constituency is trunk road. I therefore suggest that the hon. Member gets in touch with the Staffordshire County Council, which is the local highway authority.
