§ 8. Captain GARRO-JONES
asked the Home Secretary how many charges under 1878 the Motor Car Acts were brought in 1922, 1925, and 1927, respectively?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I can give certain figures for 1922, 1925 and 1926. Those for 1927 are not yet available. In the three years first mentioned, the numbers of persons prosecuted for offences against the Motor Car Acts in England and Wales were 82,321, 150,762 and 163,344. Offences of drunkenness while in charge of motor vehicles and revenue offences committed by motorists are not included.
