HC Deb 17 March 1983 vol 39 c243W
Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list, for the most recent year available, the costs to the community of road accidents in terms of medical and ambulance costs.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

This information is not readily available. An estimate was made, however, of the hospital and ambulance costs of road accidents in 1978. These, including capital costs amounted to some £86 million and £7 million respectively at today's prices.
