Departmental Vehicles

Volume 472: debated on Monday 3 March 2008

To ask the Solicitor-General (1) how many vehicles were (a) owned and (b) purchased by her Department in each of the last 10 years; (183303)

(2) how many (a) parking tickets and (b) speeding fines were issued for vehicles used by the Law Officers’ Departments in each of the last 10 years; and what the cost to the public purse of those penalties was in each year.

My Department has neither owned nor purchased vehicles in this period.

The Serious Fraud Office is aware of one parking ticket for £100 issued in April 2006.

The Law Officers’ Departments do not routinely hold such records as it is not their policy to reimburse fines incurred by employees. There has therefore been no cost to the public purse in this period.
