HC Deb 09 February 1968 vol 758 c250W
Sir G. de Freitas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many drivers in Northamptonshire during December, 1967, were asked to take the breathalyser tests, how many refused, how many were found positive, and how many were found negative; and how these figures compare with the average for other comparable areas.

Mr. Taverne

Breath tests were required in 31 cases, in 3 of which the test was failed or refused, in 19 considered positive, and in 9 negative. The figures do not differ greatly from those for other comparable police areas.
