To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the number of drink-driving convictions in the last 12 months; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. John Patten

The available information is for findings of guilt at all courts for driving and so on after consuming alcohol or taking drugs. It is published for 1976 to 1986 in table 7 of Home Office statistical bulletin 36/87, "Offences Relating to Motor Vehicles, England and Wales 1986", copies of which are in the Library. In 1986, there were about 107,000 such findings of guilt. The figures for 1987 will he published later this year.
