HC Deb 16 November 1976 vol 919 c493W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will give the numbers of disabled drivers driving tricycles and departmental four-wheelers, respectively, who travel less than 500 miles, 500 to 1,000 miles, 1,000 to 2,000 miles, 2,000 to 4,000 miles and over 4,000 miles per annum; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Alfred Morris

A small, sample check, taken about three years ago, suggested that petrol-driven trikes cover on average less than 3,000 miles a year and that 21 per cent. cover less than 1,000 miles a year. To provide all the information now requested by my hon. Friend would necessitate a special inquiry, which could not be undertaken without a disproportionate use of resources.
