HC Deb 13 March 1990 vol 169 c147W
Mr. French

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is his estimate of the number of vehicles being driven without third party insurance cover.

Mr. Atkins

In 1988, the most recent year for which figures are available, there were 208,568 findings of guilt by magistrates courts in England and Wales for using a motor vehicle uninsured against third party risks. I am not aware of any reliable estimate of the number of vehicles actually being used without insurance.
