HC Deb 10 December 1963 vol 686 cc76-7W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Minister of Transport if he will state the number of proceedings that have been brought and results secured under Section 16 of the Road Traffic Act, 1960, Abandoned vehicles, in the last full year for which figures are available.

Mr. Woodhouse

I have been asked to reply.

In 1962 there were 1,268 prosecutions in England and Wales for offences against Section 16 of the Road Traffic Act, 1960. I regret that the number of convictions could not be ascertained without a disproportionate amount of work; but this information will be available for 1964 and subsequently, thanks to the introduction of a computer.
