Army: Official Cars

Volume 460: debated on Thursday 17 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether any official cars used by senior members of the Army have been damaged in the last two years. (137132)

Over the last two years there have been 75 accidents recorded that can be attributed to vehicles being driven by senior Army officers (Lt. Col. and above). It is, however, impossible to tell from the MOD’s traffic accident reporting system the severity of the accident or whether any damage resulted to the vehicle. As incidents are recorded by driver name, senior officers who may have been involved as passengers are not identified on the system.
