Crime: Traffic Offences

Volume 712: debated on Wednesday 1 July 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many non-British-driving-licence holders were (a) cautioned, (b) arrested, and (c) prosecuted, for traffic offences in each of the last three years. [HL4457]

Information collected centrally by the Ministry of Justice on the Cautions and Court Proceedings Database for England and Wales does not include nationality of the defendant.

The information requested on arrests is not collected centrally. The arrests collection held by the Home Office for England and Wales 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.

Information for Scotland is a matter for the Scottish Executive and that for Northern Ireland for the Northern Ireland Office.
