HC Deb 06 December 1973 vol 865 cc431-2W
29. Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will seek powers to ensure that a non-British EEC national, who has to be released after being involved in a road accident where blood analysis discloses excess of alcohol, can be subsequently served with summonses under United Kingdom law and made to answer to them.

Mr. Carlisle

The Government are considering problems of enforcing the law against drivers resident abroad who commit road traffic offences in this country. Practical and legal problems of considerable difficulty are involved.
