§ 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 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.
