asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether, in the light of the statistics for failing-to-stop accidents in the Greater Manchester area and the correlation in hours and days with licensing hours, he will take action to introduce mandatory disqualifications for accidents causing injury to the person equivalent to those currently laid down for failure to take a breath test or supply a sample of blood or urine.
