HC Deb 22 March 1999 vol 328 c27W
Mr. Soley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if his Department collects comparative data on accidents involving police, ambulance and fire service vehicles responding to emergency calls. [77343]

Mr. George Howarth

No comparative data are collected but the Home Office monitors accident rates arising from both police responses to emergency calls and pursuits. We are supporting the Association of Chief Police Officers in all its work to reduce the casualties which regrettably arise from time to time in these situations.
