§ Mr. HASLAM
asked the Home Secretary how many warning letters have been issued by the Metropolitan Police to motorists charged with trivial motoring offences; and in how many cases motorists who have received a warning letter have been subsequently charged with motoring offences?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The number of warning letters issued by the Metropolitan Police to motorists reported for minor motoring offences since 18th July, 1928, is 4,280. It would be impossible to say, without elaborate research, in how many cases persons who have received a warning letter have been subsequently summoned.
