§ Mr. Bob Russell
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what estimate he has made of the number of(a) deaths and (b) injuries attributable to accidents involving drivers using mobile telephones. 
§ Mr. Hill
There is international research which has found that the distraction may impact on safety. We therefore strongly discourage the use of mobile phones while driving. However, on the basis of current UK data it is not possible to estimate the number of deaths and injuries attributable solely to the use of mobile phones while driving.
