asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many drivers of motor-cars, motor-cycles, motor coaches and goods vehicles, respectively, were prosecuted, and how many convicted, for exceeding the speed limit or crossing a road junction against the traffic lights, respectively, in the Metropolitan Police District in the years 1961, 1962, 1963 and to the latest convenient date in 1964.

§ Mr. Johnson
Irrespective of the number of prosecutions and convictions, is my hon. Friend aware that the practice of crossing a road intersection against a red light appears to be increasing? Will he give instructions to the police to keep a perticular look out for any drivers
