§ Sir G. Nabarro
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prosecutions there were in 1972 for driving with faulty tyres; and how many of these prosecutions were in respect of the tyre tread being below the minimum required standard of one millimetre.

In 1972 in England and Wales there were 115,576 prosecutions for contravention of, or failure to comply with, Regulation 83 of The Motor Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1969, which relates to the condition and maintenance of tyres.
