Roads: Safety

Volume 496: debated on Monday 20 July 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport pursuant to the Second Special Report from the Transport Committee, HC 422, Further Government Response to the Eleventh Report of the Transport Committee of Session 2007-08, whether his Department has decided upon the creation of an anonymised database of selected information from police investigations which is not available from the Stats 19 database. (288508)

The consultation document “A Safer Way” included the option of creating an anonymised database of selected information (not available from the Stats 19) from police investigations into fatal collisions. The consultation closed 14 July and we are now starting to analyse the responses received. We are continuing to review the availability of data on collisions with a view to improving our understanding of the causes of collisions.
