Driving: Insurance

Volume 462: debated on Friday 29 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what discussions he has had with the Home Secretary on action taken by the police to identify uninsured drivers in Wales. (146554)

I understand that the police make extensive use of insurance data made available through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau to tackle the serious problem of uninsured driving. I understand that the latest figures indicate that 94.4 per cent. of all appropriate records are provided to the Motor Insurance Database within seven days. This is in line with expectations to meet the target of 95 per cent. of all appropriate records provided to the database within seven days by 1 January 2008.
