Safety Belts: Children

Volume 478: debated on Thursday 26 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many persons have been prosecuted for offences relating to transporting children under the age of 12 years in vehicles without an appropriate car seat since September 2006, broken down by children of age (a) seven and under, (b) eight, (c) nine, (d) 10 and (e) 11 years; how many have been fined; and what the average fine was. (213955)

Available information held centrally by my Department on the prosecution of seat belt offences is not able to distinguish the age of persons not wearing a seat belt and does not indicate whether or not a booster cushion or child seat was available.
