asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish in the Official Report for each of the past five years (a) the number of fatalities, (b) the number of persons suffering serious injuries and (c) the number of persons suffering minor injuries in accidents at or near to roadworks on roads in Scotland.

The information readily available to me about accidents where the presence of nearby roadworks is recorded covers only the past four years and is as follows:

Number of Casualties
YearFatalSeriousSlight
197881126
197954893
198083465
198154442

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish in the Official Report for each of the past five years (a) the number of fatalities, (b) the number of persons suffering serious injuries and (c) the number of persons suffering minor injuries in accidents on Scottish roads where a contributory factor was inadequate siting or illumination of traffic signs in advance of road works.

This information is not held centrally, and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
