HC Deb 02 April 1925 vol 182 cc1495-6
37. Captain BRASS

asked the Home Secretary whether he can state the amount of money received from fines for offences against the Motor Car Acts and the Road Acts, respectively, in England and Wales during each quarter of the year 1924?


As the answer is somewhat long, I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT

Following is the answer:

It is not possible to differentiate between Motor Car Acts and Roads Act penalties, as the Return of Exchequer Fines shows one total for all such cases.

The net amounts transmitted by Courts of Summary Jurisdiction in England and Wales to the Home Office for payment to the Motor Tax Account during the year 1924 in respect of penalties imposed under the Motor Car Acts, 1896 and 1903, and Roads Act, 1920, were as follow:
