HC Deb 11 March 1987 vol 112 c200W
44. Mr. Pollock

asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland when he met representatives of Scotland's campaign against irresponsible drivers; what subjects were discussed; and if he will make a statement.

The Solicitor-General for Scotland

I met Mrs. Brydie of Scotland's campaign against irresponsible drivers on 2 March 1987. Amongst the issues discussed were the charges brought against accused drivers, the sentences open to the courts, the holding of fatal accident inquiries and the provision of informaton to victims' families. I share the concern that any death should occur as a result of reckless driving, and those who cause death by driving recklessly can fully expect to be prosecuted in the courts when sufficient evidence exists.
