HC Deb 15 January 1998 vol 304 c255W
Mr. Maginnis

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions in respect of how many fatal vehicular accidents in England and Wales during each of the past 10 years there was evidence that the major contributory factor lay with drivers who were insulin-dependent diabetes sufferers.

Ms Glenda Jackson

We do not have comprehensive figures as information on the medical circumstances of drivers involved in accidents cannot be readily collected. Studies have shown, however, that a significant proportion of collapses at the wheel have been the result of hypoglycaemia, and there have been a number of accidents involving collapses over the years.
