Driving under Influence: Elderly

Volume 489: debated on Thursday 19 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many individuals aged over 65 years have been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in each of the last 10 years. (264015)

The information requested on arrests is not collected centrally.

The arrests collection held by the Home Office covers arrests for recorded crime (notifiable offences) only, broken down at a main offence group level, covering categories such as violence against the person and robbery.

The offence of driving under the influence of alcohol is not a notifiable offence and does not form a part of the arrests collection.
