HC Deb 05 May 1971 vol 816 c378W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is aware that in 1969 there were approximately 400,000 reports of vehicles failing to show licences; that of this number, 145,000 were prosecuted resulting in penalties and back duty payments of £1,545,000; and how much of this amount had been paid off at the latest convenient stated date.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

I am aware of the figures, but information about how much of the penalties and back duty had been paid off at a particular date is not available.
