Driving Under the Influence

Volume 470: debated on Monday 7 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many road accidents in Copeland resulted in prosecutions for driving under the influence of alcohol in each year since 1997. (176640)

Information on road accidents is a matter for the Department for Transport.

The information on prosecutions held centrally by my Department does not identify the circumstances of cases and therefore, in the case of drink driving offences, whether an accident was involved. The only case information captured for such prosecutions, apart from the court results for individual offences, is the age and gender of the defendant.
