Road Traffic Offences: Prisoners Release

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 9 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 23 July 2007, Official Report, column 800W, on road traffic offences: prisoners release, which of the releases for motoring offences between (a) 29 June and 5 July and (b) 6 July and 31 July, were for the offences of (i) causing death by dangerous driving under section 1, (ii) dangerous driving under section 2 and (iii) causing death by careless driving while under the influence of drink or drugs under section 3a of the Road Traffic Act 1988. (156268)

Data on the number of End of Custody Licence releases for the three specific sections of the Road Traffic Act 1998 are not collated centrally because the recording of offence details on prison IT systems is not sufficiently detailed. Collecting this information reliably to answer the question at the detailed level requested would involve collecting and checking data manually and therefore incur disproportionate cost.
