§ Mr. Wallace
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what information he has regarding the number of vehicles in the United Kingdom scrapped during the last full year for which figures are available; and what was the number reported to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Centre in Swansea.
§ Mr. Atkins
The only information available is that reported to DVLC. In 1989 there were 310,439 vehicles in Great Britain reported as being either scrapped or exported. To extract from this total the number of vehicles scrapped could be done only at disproportionate cost.
