§ Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what estimates there are, for the last year for which figures are available, of the number of road accidents caused by stray dogs; how many people were injured as a result; and how many people were killed.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
The "Stats 19" road accident report form does not record the causes of accidents.
Information is available for personal injury accidents in Great Britain where a dog was present on the carriageway. In 1985 there were 1,221 such accidents, in which three people were killed and 1,458 were injured.
