HC Deb 06 November 1978 vol 957 c84W
Mr. Anthony Grant

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what was the number of accidents involving cars, lorries, motor cycles, and pedal cycles, respectively, in each of the last three years; and if he will express such accidents as a percentage of the esimated number of such means of transport in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Horam

I regret that the information is not available in the precise form requested. The following information is available:

Land and rehousing costs are excluded from these figures and may account for 10 per cent. or more of the overall cost. If motorways were used only by cars these costs would be reduced by about 10 per cent. in rural situations and less when passing through urban areas.
