HC Deb 17 April 1991 vol 189 c175W
Mr. Cummings

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list the number of road traffic accidents and the numbers of injuries and deaths that have taken place on the stretch of the A19 which passes through the Easington constituency for 1990–91; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Chope

For the section of the A19 within the Easington constituency the accident figures available for 1990 are as follows.

Number of road traffic accidents 16
Number of personal injuries 30
Number of deaths 2

The accident rate is higher than I would wish although it is lower than the national average for similar trunk roads.
