To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give details of the number of fatal accident inquiries arising from road accidents within the Clydesdale constituency each year since 1979; and if he will make a statement.
These statistics are not centrally held and cannot be obtained except at disproportionate cost.
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he next hopes to meet the procurator fiscal in Kilmarnock to discuss the procedures for fatal accident inquiries.
My noble and learned Friend the Lord Advocate meets procurators fiscal from time to time. He has no immediate plans to meet the procurator fiscal at Kilmarnock.
