HC Deb 01 November 1995 vol 265 c314W
Mrs. Golding

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if his Department will estimate the cost of(a) a fatality, (b) a serious injury and (c) a slight injury on the road, taking into account the costs of the police, the courts and medical care. [40264]

Mr. Norris

The costs of police and courts, together with insurance company administration and property damage, are not calculated according to casualty but per accident—which may involve more than one casualty. The resulting estimated accident costs in 1994 were(a) fatal: £913,100; (b) serious: £108,100; (c) slight: £10,600.
