§ Mr. Beggs
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will call for reports from the chief constables in England and Wales as to the practice of their forces in detaining overnight drivers from Northern Ireland in connection with minor road traffic offences; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
No. The responsibility for the enforcement of road traffic law rests with chief officers of police, but if the hon. Member has a particular case in mind I should be glad to look into it.
